    A's acquire Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from Cubs

    The Cubs and Athletics are in serious discussions regarding a major swap that would deliver Chicago starters Jason Hammel “and/or” Jeff Samardzija to Oakland, report Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi of FOX Sports (Twitter links). Top Oakland prospect Addison Russell has been discussed, according to the report.

    Needless to say, a deal involving both Hammel and Samardzija would represent a stunning early turn in the market. The pair of Cubs hurlers has long been rumored to be among the best arms likely to change hands over the summer.

    Hammel is a sturdy option to bolster a rotation down the stretch. Signed to a one-year, $6MM contract entering the season, he owns a solid 2.98 ERA with 8.5 K/9 against 1.8 BB/9 through 102 2/3 frames.

    Samardzija, on the other hand, represents a possible mid or even long-term piece. He is earning a modest $5.35MM in his second (and second-to-last) season of arbitration eligibility. Though his excellent 2.83 ERA (8.6 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9) through 108 frames will warrant a significant raise next year, he surely projects to deliver significant excess value over his contract potential. And a team acquiring Samardzija may well make a run at an extension.

    Cubs, A's in serious discussions for Hammel and/or Samardzija

    Athletics would seriously benefit from this. Especially if they would resign Hammel (barring his success) this could work out very nicely for both clubs.

    #WhyNot?

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops

    Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 1m
    DEAL IS DONE: #Cubs send Samardzija and Hammel to #Athletics for Addison Russell, per sources. May be other players and team(s) involved.
    Wow. Wonder what else is going on here.

    Hoping the third team is the mets and they get Russell by dealing some of their pitching.

    Holy **** Russell for Shark and Hammel is a steal for Chicago.

    Hard to argue that they don't have the best system now, even with a lack of pitching.

    I think you have to consider trading Castro now too. Russell Baez and Alcantara will be covering SS 3B and 2B.
