OAKLAND, Calif. Wholesale Reds Jerseys . -- With ace Clayton Kershaws troublesome back making him somewhat of an unknown for the stretch run, the contending Los Angeles Dodgers boosted their depleted rotation Monday by getting left-hander Rich Hill and right fielder Josh Reddick from the Oakland Athletics for a trio of pitching prospects.With Reddick acquired, the Dodgers plan to demote outfielder Yasiel Puig to the minor leagues on Tuesday, according to Puigs agent, Adam Katz. Katz said Puig did not travel with the Dodgers to Colorado on Monday after being told hed either be traded or sent down.The deal was announced two hours before the deadline for completing trades without waivers.The As received minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas, who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year -- three pitchers that general manager David Forst expects to help his team for years to come.Letting Reddick go wasnt an easy call.This was not a typical decision because of Josh, Forst said. ... Josh has been here for a long time and in a lot of ways has been the face of the franchise over the past number of years and has really connected with the fans, everybody who works here, the staff. I cant say enough about Joshs time in an Oakland As uniform.Forst said despite ongoing discussions since the end of last year the sides never could work out a new contract that satisfied both parties, disappointing for the As and Reddick, Forst said, noting, this was not your typical buy-or-sell decision.Forst said Oakland was simultaneously considering trading Hill and extending his contract.Hill, who signed a $6 million, one-year contract with Oakland during the offseason, is on the disabled list with a pesky blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasnt healed. He had been scheduled to pitch Sunday in Cleveland before the DL stint.Big-spending Los Angeles began the day with a 59-46 record, two games out of first place in the NL West behind San Francisco.The 36-year-old Hill is 9-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts and 76 innings. The 29-year-old Reddick is batting .296 with eight home runs and 28 RBI. This was his fifth year with the As after spending his first three big league seasons with Boston.Both Hill and Reddick can become free agents after this season. Reddick is earning $6,575,000 this year.The As, at 47-58, are often sellers at the trade deadline. They made the deal with former Athletics executive and now-Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi.Montas hasnt pitched in the majors this year. He was scheduled for a follow-up scan Monday on his ribs. He had a rib resection done then suffered a setback during a rehab assignment when he sustained a stress fracture to another rib.That didnt deter the As, who are confident he will be fully healthy to pitch next season.We felt like we got significant value and made a significant contribution to the future of the organization, Forst said. At no point were we looking to move players for the sake of dollars, that was not ever a directive. And we also are not interested in moving players and throwing some sort of white flag for the rest of the season. Joe Morgan Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. Brandon Finnegan Jersey . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check.Steve Evans will not be sacked as Leeds United boss, chairman Massimo Cellino has told Sky Sports News HQ. Leeds were hammered 4-0 at Brighton on Monday night, and Evans was ordered not to speak to the media by Cellino. That sparked speculation that he would be sacked, but Cellino says Evans job is safe. When asked if he was going to sack Evans, Cellino said: Come on. That is not the problem. I wish it was just this problem. Brightons Tomer Hemed celebrates scoring his sides first goal We have a problem because we are in an emergency moment. We have five players out and I didnt speak with him after the game because we aware both very disappointed and very embarrassed about what happened, but it is not just because of the coach.I am very embarrassed for the supporters because they really are better than this team. That is the only thing I can say.At the moment we have to face that I took this club after 12 years of problems and I tried to fix everything that was left to fix. And you cannot repair everything that has decayed in 12 years. Brighton celebrate another goal I also had economic problems in the past and the focus then was to avoid making the same mistakes of the people that were at the club before me. To do nice things you need time.But the Italian also told Sky Sports News HQ that he did not want Evans speaking to the media after the game because he felt his head coach had been doing talking too much recently.The last few weeks he has been talking too much about the future, his contract, the players, Cellino said. Sky Sports News HQ understands Steve Evans will not be sacked as Leeds Uniteds manager He has to focus on the game. We are missing four or five players from the first-team squad and we are in an emergency, and instead of complaining we must just focus and try and play altogether and not just complain in the media.The best way to speak with fans is to play good football and not just talking in the media.Cellino - who did not watch the second half of the game - has faced calls from some supporters to leave the club but the Sardinean says that is far from straightforwardThe supporters have a right to compllain and sometimes they dont have anybody else to complain about, he said. Barry Larkin Jersey. Leeds assistant coach Paul Raynor was very disappointed with United’s performance in their 4-0 defeat to Brighton I have to accept everything and respect everything but it is not too easy to just walk away when you are doing something you think is good. I think I am doing the right thing for this club and I am going to show it.The fans want to win that is it.Asked by Jim White if he would stick around for the full 90 minutes next time Leeds played, Cellino said: Come on Jim dont play with me. Maybe I will stay 85 minutes or 95 minutes. Thank you very much but that is not the issue. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Brighton and Leeds His team-mate Toumani Diagouraga also apologised, saying Leeds players intend to bounce back when they welcome fellow strugglers Bolton to Elland Road on Saturday.He tweeted: That 1st half performance wasnt good enough sorry to everyone who travelled all the way down we be looking to put it right on Saturday.Some Leeds players took to social media after the game to apologise to fans for the sides first-half performance.Winger Mustapha Carayol tweeted: I want to apologise to the fans 2night that was totally unacceptable 1st half performance..Wish all the travelling fans a safe journey home!
