Jim Callis -

There's no question that the Athletics made a trade for Chris Denorfia on Friday with an eye to the future. The outfielder is expected to miss the entire 2007 season after having Tommy John surgery on April 3. To get Denorfia from the Reds, Oakland parted with two players to be named and cash considerations. Cincinnati acquired Triple-A righthander Marcus McBeth from the A's on Saturday as part of the payment. On June 12, the Reds received lefty Ben Jukich as the second player to be named.
