Athletics To Designate Michael Taylor For Assignment

The Athletics will designate Michael Taylor for assignment, Taylor told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle (Twitter link). The move comes as no surprise, as it was reported on Thursday that Taylor would not make the club and he is out of options.

Taylor is a once-hyped prospect who, at age 28, has never really seen much time at the MLB level. After a strong effort this spring, he figures to draw some interest from around the league.

1) CarGo and some other players went to the Rockies for Matt Holliday

2) Holliday went to the Cardinals for Brett Wallace and others.

3) Brett Wallace went to the Jays for Michael Taylor.

Follow the trade chain long enough, and with the DFA of Taylor, the A’s received almost nothing in the long run for giving up Gonzalez.
