Reddick disheartened by lack of contract

Athletics' deadline status: sellers
The A's are the most likely seller again at this year's trade deadline, with LHP Rich Hill and OF Josh Reddick their headliners, Jim Bowden writes. But what does the future hold for Sonny Gray? Trade deadline objectives (Insider)
Tim Beckham homered and then sparked a four-run inning with his eighth straight hit over three games to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night.
The Cubs are active in the trade market and are reportedly interested in A's outfielder Josh Reddick, who will become a free agent at season's end.
All-Time #MLBRank: No. 22 Rickey Henderson
Henderson has the most stolen bases in MLB history and is the only player ever with 3,000 hits and 2,000 walks. He scored more runs than any player ever. The all-time leader in leadoff home runs with 81, he's also the only player in baseball history to hit a home run in 25 seasons. Nos. 30-21
Athletics have big trade chips in Gray, Hill
Sonny Gray isn't likely to be dealt as a result of his poor season, but Rich Hill figures to be the best pitcher traded at the deadline, Jim Bowden writes. Danny Valencia and Josh Reddick are other intriguing names. Trade option rankings (Insider)
Rich Hill unlikely to pitch Sunday
Hill's blister problem is expected to keep him from being able to pitch over the weekend. Atheltics manager Bob Melvin said the team will "go with something different." SF Gate
All-time #MLBRank: No. 33 Jimmie Foxx
When Foxx hit his 500th home run in 1940, he became the second player ever to reach the mark, joining Babe Ruth. Only one player (Alex Rodriguez) has reached the mark at a younger age than Foxx, who was just shy of his 33rd birthday at No. 500. Nos. 40-31
Doug Fister pitched seven innings and Jose Altuve continued his torrid hitting as the Houston Astros defeated the Oakland Athletics 7-0 on Wednesday.
