Billy Beane will look to sell off some current assets for future promise- will any of these be discussed and dealt to the division leading Texas Rangers’ team?
As noted, the tear down has just begun in Oakland that saw Chris Coghlan return to the Cubs.
The big pieces have yet to move, but how many will make the A’s interesting to watch. Hitters Josh Reddick, Danny Valencia, Coco Crisp, Billy Butler may garner some interest from contenders, while Sonny Gray, Rich Hill, Ryan Madson, Sean Doolittle and John Axford could also be valuable pieces.
Sean Manaea is likely safe, as the decent prospect entering the year has put together a respectable rookie season. On the year, he owns a 4.61 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP with 66 strikeouts and a 3-5 record.
He’s also only allowed 2 earned runs over his past 3 starts.
Ian Desmond continues to rake this year since being made a late signing in the winter by the Rangers.
The gamble has paid off in a major way, as he has completely revitalized his career since the ink dried, with 19 HR, 60 RBI, .310 average.
The Rangers offense is a potent one, and Desmond is right at the forefront of their production.
Yu Darvish has battled through injuries for much of the season, but when healthy he’s continued to be a very good starter. Through just 5 starts this season, he owns a 3.12 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP with an excellent 39 strikeouts over just 26 innings.
Darvish, 2-2, enters the good matchup on the heels of an 11 K performance in Kansas City.

Can’t see the A’s putting up much of a fight against a Texas team that has been destroying the opposition at home this season.
