UPDATE (3:40 p.m.): The Athletics will send reliever Huston Street, outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and starter Greg Smith to Colorado. A Phillie equivalent would be Ryan Madson, Greg Golson and JA Happ, though I’d contend the Rockies were seeking something close to the combination of Shane Victorino and JA Happ.
The Athletics have closed in on a deal for Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday, according to SI.com’s Jon Heyman. The Phillies were rumored to be working a deal for Holliday, but that was somewhat denied by Todd Zolecki today.
It’s possible the A’s move either Adrian Cardenas, Gio Gonzalez or Josh Outman for Holliday. We’ll let you know if that’s the case.
