A'S TRADE FOR SAM LONG
The Oakland Athletics acquired pitcher Sam Long from the San Francisco Giants for cash.
What does it give the Oakland Athletics
The Athletics are a mess right now, so they need all the help they can get. Long is not going to turn things around for Oakland, but at least he can provide innings out of the bullpen.
What does it give the San Francisco Giants
The Giants designated Long for assignment recently, so it is no surprise that he was shipped out for cash. Long's promising start with San Francisco fizzled quickly.
There is no fantasy impact here, as Long is expected to serve as a long reliever for the struggling A's.
