The Athletics are discussing a deal with the Cubs involving Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. 

Theo Epstein has already come out and said that his preference is to trade Hammel before Samardzija,m though the Shark's strikeout potential makes him a more attractive candidate for most teams. Still, Hammel with the A's would be an outstanding match and one that should send fantasy owners to the waiver wire to pick him up immediately if it happens. He's pitched well wherever he's gone and while last season was a down one for him with the Orioles, he could join Oakland in his first pitcher-friendly home park and do wonders for the middle of that rotation. Stay tuned.
