The A’s are having problems this season, and are looking for ways to get on track.
Josh Willingham is currently on the DL for his Achilles injury. He could be back in early July, which would give him time to show his trade value.
Willingham is one of several pieces the Athletics could be shopping around to improve during the second half of the season. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle says the A’s haven’t talked to Willingham about a long-term deal.
Several teams have needs in the outfield and for right-handed hitters, and Willingham could be headed one of their ways soon.
