A's will listen on Jeff Samardzija, Scott Kazmir
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/5/14) The Athletics will listen to offers for pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir, according to FoxSports.com.
The team isn't actively looking to shop either player, but would listen if any offers came in. Both Samardzija and Kazmir are entering the final years of the their contracts. Samardzija will likely be too expensive to remain in Oakland once his deal ends, while Kazmir could price his way off the team with another solid year.
The club is adamant about keeping third baseman Josh Donaldson. Donaldson is eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career, and should receive a healthy raise, but he's too valuable a piece for the team to trade.
