Player Notes
Athletics acquired INF Marcus Semien, C Josh Phegley, RHP Chris Bassitt, 1B Rangel Ravelo from the White Sox for RHP Jeff Samardzija and RHP Michael Ynoa.

Advice: Semien is expected to take over as the A's starting shortstop with Jed Lowrie departing as a free agent. Semien has batted just .240/.293/.380 in 326 career plate appearances at the major league level, but he put up some very good minor league numbers. The 25-year-old boasts that rare combination of power and speed, and will be worth a flier in some mixed fantasy leagues for 2015.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Athletics would receive Marcus Semien and prospects in a trade of Jeff Samardzija.

Advice: It makes sense, as the A's could plug Semien into their vacancy at shortstop, though he seems unlikely to be the headliner in the deal. Semien has batted just .240/.293/.380 in 326 plate appearances at the major league level but was a .272/.374/.465 hitter in the minors, offering some pop and speed. The White Sox are looking like the favorites to land Samardzija at the moment, with Bob Nightengale of USA Today reporting earlier Monday that they have engaged in "serious talks" with the A's.
