Fantasy Impact: It’s a shocking move considering how dominant Treinen was just a season ago. He struggled in 2019 but it’s still surprising the A’s weren’t able to find a trade partner for him. We expect him to be a popular commodity in the free agent market moving forward. He could wind up as someone’s primary closer come 2020.

The Oakland Athletics have traded infielder Jurickson Profar to the San Diego Padres for catcher Austin Allen and a player to be named later, according to a report from MLB insider Jeff Passan. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Profar broke out in 2018 but was a potential non-tender candidate this offseason, leading to today's deal. With top second base prospect Luis Urias dealt to the Brewers last week, the Padres had an opening in their infield. Profar should enter training camp as the starting second baseman for San Diego with the hope that he can bounce back from a poor 2019.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Marcus Semien has informed the A's he is interested in a contract extension. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Semien is a Bay area native that has been with Oakland for years. In 2019 it all came together for him, batting .285 with an .891 OPS, 33 homers, and 10 stolen bases. Additionally, he played fantastic defense and finished third in the American League MVP voting. It's unclear if Oakland will be able to afford handing him a long-term extension. Semien can become a free agent following the 2020 season.

Liam Hendriks is still the closer heading into the postseason, but Luzardo has pitched exceedingly well since his callup and it's clear manager Bob Melvin already has a great deal of faith in the young lefty.
