The MLB trade deadline came and went on Monday with the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics in their traditional roles.

San Francisco were buyers and traded away a fan favorite to do so in shortstop Matt Duffy who played collegiately at Cal State Long Beach and was originally drafted by San Francisco in 2012. They traded Duffy, to bolster their struggling starting pitching staff, to the Tampa Bay Rays for starting pitcher Matt Moore, who will battle with Jeff Samardzija for the third spot in the rotation behind Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto.

The Giants also sent shortstop Lucius Fox and pitcher Michael Santos to the Rays as part of the deal for Moore who has appeared in 21 games this season and racked up 130 innings pitched with a 4.08 earned run average.

It was no surprise the Oakland Athletics were sellers at the deadline when they traded right fielder Josh Reddick and starting pitcher Rich Hill to Los Angeles Dodgers for pitchers Frankie Montas, Grant Holmes and Jharel Cotton. The A’s are currently in last place in the American League West Division at 47-59.

The Giants currently hold a two-game lead over the Dodgers in the National League West Division, however, Los Angeles just got a lot stronger thanks to help from the A’s and General Manager Billy Beane.
