Athletics Targeting Premium Relievers

The Athletics still have money to spend after their attempts to sign Adrian Beltre and Hisashi Iwakuma fell through, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, and they're now targeting premium relievers in addition to outfield/designated hitter types.

Rosenthal feels that someone like Scott Downs could work, with Oakland's first-round pick protected.  Most top relievers remain unsigned, including Rafael Soriano, Bobby Jenks, Brian Fuentes, Jesse Crain, Matt Guerrier, and Koji Uehara.
