Oakland Athletics SP Tommy Milone asked for a trade, and manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday, July 23, that he spoke with the pitcher briefly earlier this week. "He got ahold of me when all this was coming out, and I'm pretty sure he didn't expect it get the play it has," Melvin said. "To an extent, he's looking out for his big-league career, and he's pitched really well for us." Milone has drawn interest from other teams.

Oakland Athletics assistant general manager David Forst said the team won't look outside the organization for starting pitching help now that SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) is out for the season and SP A.J. Griffin (elbow) will miss more than a month with flexor tendonitis. SPs Tommy Milone and Jesse Chavez will enter the rotation.

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) will undergo his second Tommy John surgery March 25, and he'll likely miss the rest of the season.
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously drop Parker if you drafted him already. Tommy Milone's value just jumped significantly in AL-only leagues. Milone might not be a bad idea in deep mixed leagues for rotation depth, either.

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin acknowledged that SPs Jarrod Parker (forearm) and A.J. Griffin (elbow) are in jeopardy of starting the season on the disabled list. SP Jesse Chavez is expected to claim one of the rotation spots, and SP Tommy Milone is also likely to be in the starting five in April.
Fantasy Tip: Avoiding Parker and Griffin in your drafts might be the smart thing to do right now, until we know more about their injuries. Chavez and Milone are flier picks in cavernous mixed leagues and AL drafts.

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (forearm) is dealing with forearm tightness and will visit with Dr. James Andrew Monday, March 17.
Fantasy Tip: It's never a good thing when a pitcher goes to see Andrews about forearm or elbow problems. Keep tabs on how the visit goes. If Parker's issue is serious, there's a good bet Tommy Milone or Jesse Chavez will take his rotation spot.
