According to multiple sources, including MLB.com, the A's and D-backs are nearing the completion of a trade that will send Cahill and Breslow to the D-backs to join Ziggy.
In return, Oakland is expected to receive prized pitching prospect Jarrod Parker and outfielder Collin Cowgill, baseball sources confirmed. Another player could also be heading Oakland's way in the multi-player package.
So long, Trevor Cahill. So long to the smartest player in baseball. We will miss you both!
Okay, so who knows anything about Collin Cowgill (really?) and Jarrod Parker?
