6:53 pm
for it. but the deadline a lot of the times you'll hear about those rumors, this, that, nothing really materialized, but not today as they would get a whole lot of people changing their zip codes from morning tonight. the trades and the giants, bolstering their pitching staff right in the middle of it. their lefty from tampa 27 years old. 7-7 record with 4.08 e.r.a. in his last 10 games he's gotten six or more innings a solid guy on the rotation. as a matter of fact 2013 he made the all-star team with a 17-4 record. he might take jake peavy's spot in the starting rotation. giants haven't made that known yet. to get him, giants gave up that guy right there matt duffy with a gold glove contender last year, 3rd base. number two for the voting of the rookie of the year, but suffered an achilles injury just 25. hit .295 last year, but as i said dealing with injury problems right now. not ready to play. matt duffy a good player then a
6:54 pm
couple of prospects they give up. but it is all about pitching when you're talking about the giants. and matt moore definitely fits the bill there. >> it's hard to, you know, imagine myself not here after nine years. but you know, just getting out there, the producers doing something really nice for them and to kind of start to, you know, take care of them. and for months to come. >> all right. and also that they will be bolstering their bullpen lefty will smith getting jiggy with it. 1.63 e.r.a. a guy that throws hard as you can see by the highlights. as a matter of fact dominating last year with 91 strikeouts. 61 1/3 innings giving up their number one draft choice.
6:55 pm
and they promised to catch up a lot of injury problems in sacramento and so the price is pretty steep right there as well. talking a little bit about their a's. i guess that the a's fans, they just have to bite that bullet here and to understand that the team seems to be in a constant rebuilding mode. as they will get rid of another very popular player. that would be josh reddick a familiar story here. reddick on the pace for being an all star this year and before he fractured his thumb. .296, eight homers with injuries. just a very popular player who tweets this out today. just want to thank the oakland athletic organization for the time i spent there, i played in some very memorable and spectacular games. i wouldn't be where i'm at without oakland as he will be a free agent at end of the season. and rich hill is another lefty who winds up going to the, he
6:56 pm
winds up getting traded from the a's to the dodgers in that same deal. we're not going to see any video, but i'll tell you the guy that they were also interested in, jay bruce that will end up getting traded to the new york mets. and he is a guy that has gotten a great hour, 25 home runs so far. he's got 80 rbis leading the league in that total. as a matter of fact that he's the first player since 1920. to get traded when leading the league in rbis. the mets will give up a couple of prospects against babe ruth and the power in the line up with cespedes. all right, we'll take a look at highlights from team u.s.a. tonight at 10:00 as they are taking care of business again in the olympic warm ups. that's the sporting life for right now. >> josh reddick with the pie in the face all the time who would like to do that? >> he started that tradition. they'll need to find somebody else to take over that mode. but josh reddick, a great talent, very popular.
6:57 pm
popular with the media too. always easy in the interviews and very candid with the media. he'll be missed. >> it seems like a lot of fans when they get used to someone they're up and gone. >> get use today it. josh reddick, cespedes, you name it. >> it's a bummer when they let your guys go. but when your team picks up people it gives you that excitement. >> exactly and the a's pick up three prospects. we don't know much about them yet, but they're highly regarding pitching prospects for the dodgers. >> our coverage continues over on ktvu plus. all right julie, thank you very much. coming up another shooting on highway 80. this time in emeryville. the the victim in the car is now in critical condition. also 13-year-old boy in fairfield shot and killed with a stolen gun. that gun belonged to the mayor of stockton. we're going to talk to the boy's father. that and more coming up on ktvu -- ktvu plus. >> we'll see you soon.
