OAKLAND, Calif. -- Two people with knowledge of the trade say the Oakland Athletics have traded right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a trio of right-handers.
The A's receive minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas -- who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year -- in the deal. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because the trade had yet to be formally announced by either club.
Hill, who signed a $6 million, one-year contract with Oakland during the offseason, is on the disabled list with a pesky blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasn't healed. He had been scheduled to pitch Sunday in Cleveland before the DL stint.
Red Sox acquire reliever Abad from Twins
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Boston Red Sox have acquired left-handed reliever Fernando Abad from the Minnesota Twins for minor league pitcher Pat Light.
The deal was the first announced Monday in the majors before the non-waiver trade deadline, giving the Red Sox another veteran for the bullpen in their pursuit of Baltimore and Toronto in the AL East.
Abad has a 2.65 ERA in 39 appearances for the Twins. He is making $1.25 million this year and will be eligible for free agency after the 2017 season.
The 30-year-old Abad has held opponents to a .220 batting average this year. He came up with Houston and also has pitched for Washington and Oakland.
