Royals Acquire OF Josh Willingham from Twins

Royals Acquire OF Josh Willingham from Twins

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) –  In attempt to bolster their lineup, the Kansas City Royals have acquired outfielder Josh Williingham from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league pitcher Jason Adam.
Willingham was hitting just .210 this season for the Twins, but the Royals were looking to add power to their lineup and were intrigued by the 35-year-old.  Just two years ago he hit 35 home runs and drove in 110 runs for Minnesota.
“Obviously the goal was to win with the Twins,” Willingham said upon hearing about the trade. “Unfortunately, we weren’t. Now I have a chance to go help another club and hopefully make the playoffs.”
Willingham is expected to play Tuesday night when the Royals take on the Oakland Athletics at home.
The Royals hope Willingham will help the team make the playoffs for the first time since 1985, when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals to win the World Series.

Royals Take AL Central Lead with Win

Royals Take AL Central Lead with Win

Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Just over a week ago, Kansas City was five games behind the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central. Now, the Royals (64-53) won their eighth straight on Monday and overtook the Tigers in the division race with a 3-2 win over Oakland.
Kansas City jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after two innings, but Brandon Moss singled home a pair of runs for the Athletics (72-46) in the third to tie the game.
It remained deadlocked until Alcides Escobar singled in a run in the seventh, giving the Royals a 3-2 advantage.
Yordany Ventura out dueled Sonny Gray by allowing two runs on two hits over six innings. Gray went seven strong, giving up three runs on six hits while striking out a pair.
Kansas City was able to gain the top spot in the AL Central when Pittsburgh defeated Detroit 11-3. It marks the latest point in the season since 2003 that the Royals have been in first place.
“You want to be in first place. Our goal was to get back to first place,” said Royals manager Ned Yost, who has won eight games in a row. “Now our goal is to stay in first place.”

Athletics Acquire SP Jon Lester from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes

Athletics Acquire SP Jon Lester from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) –  The Oakland Athletics have acquired starting pitcher Jon Lester, outfielder Jonny Gomes, and cash considerations from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and a 2015 competitive balance pick.
The Red Sox were dangling Lester for several days leading up to Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET non-waiver trade deadline. 
Several teams were believed to be interested in the two-time World Series champion, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Baltimore Orioles. In the end, it was the Athletics who swooped in and gave the Red Sox an offer they couldn’t refuse.
The 30-year-old Lester will be a free agent after the season. 
He will join a strong rotation in Oakland that already includes All-Stars Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir, along with youngster Sonny Gray.
Cespedes, 28, is a two-time reigning Home Run Derby champion who has 17 homers and 56 RBIs this season.  He will provide the Red Sox with a big bat in the middle of their lineup.
Gomes is hitting .234 with 6 home runs and 32 RBIs in 2014.

Athletics Rally Past Astros in the 9th Inning

Athletics Rally Past Astros in the 9th Inning

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — The Oakland Athletics have proved once again why they very well may be the best team in all of Major League Baseball. On Tuesday night, Oakland scored six runs in the ninth inning to rally back and defeat the Houston Astros, 7-4.
Trailing 4-1 in the ninth inning, the Athletics were able to get the best of closer Chad Qualls.
Alberto Callaspo started the rally as he single home both Derek Norris and Josh Reddick. Yoenis Cespedes proceeded to tie the game with an RBI single.
With the game tied at 4, Brandon Moss was the hero as he singled home Jed Lowrie, giving Oakland a 5-4 lead.
“It had not been a very good day until that last at-bat,” Moss said. “I was just trying to battle, stay on the ball a little bit. Get on base any way I could. If I got a good pitch to hit, hit it hard.”
Josh Donaldson gave the team some insurance runs as he later doubled home Yoenis Cespedes and Moss.
The Athletics are now 66-40, and have the best record in all of Major League Baseball.

Athletics Designate Closer Jim Johnson for Assignment

Athletics Designate Closer Jim Johnson for Assignment

Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — The Jim Johnson experiment is over in Oakland as the Athletics have designated the former All-Star for assignment.
Johnson was the team’s big offseason addition this past offseason in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles.
Johnson, who was paid $10 million this season, had been one of the best closers in baseball the past two seasons. He saved 101 games from 2012-2013 in Baltimore.
This season was entirely different for the 31-year-old Johnson. In 38 games with the Athletics, Johnson was 4-2 with a 7.14 ERA and a WHIP of 2.06.
His last appearance with the team came on Wednesday when he gave up four earned runs without recording an out. His allowed eight earned runs total his last three appearances in just 2.0 innings of work.
Despite the struggles of Johnson, the Athletics are one of the best teams in all of baseball. At 63-38, they hold the best record in baseball.
