Yoenis Cespedes
Jon Lester

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland Athletics – Oakland’s rotation already was very good after last month’s trade with the Cubs. Now it got even better even if Jon Lester turns into just a three-month rental. The A’s were likely to lose Cespedes in free agency after next year so give credit to Billy Beane for thinking a few steps ahead by including Cespedes for Lester. And also give Beane credit for getting a proven outfielder Jonny Gomes. The A’s already had Gomes when he helped them reach the postseason two years ago. – Grade A
