A's will listen on Jeff Samardzija, Scott Kazmir
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Athletics will listen to offers for pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir, according to FoxSports.com.

The team isn't actively looking to shop either player, but would listen if any offers came in. Both Samardzija and Kazmir are entering the final years of the their contracts. Samardzija will likely be too expensive to remain in Oakland once his deal ends, while Kazmir could price his way off the team with another solid year. 

The club is adamant about keeping third baseman Josh Donaldson. Donaldson is eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career, and should receive a healthy raise, but he's too valuable a piece for the team to trade.

Josh Donaldson plays despite knee injury
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics infielder Josh Donaldson appeared to suffer a knee injury Friday against the Rangers.

Donaldson admitted that there's a chance he won't play Saturday, but remains optimistic he'll be in there. "Obviously they’re going to look at it," Donaldson said. "But how I felt at the end of the game, it didn’t get any worse, which was good. So hopefully I’ll be in there tomorrow.”

Donaldson singled in his first at-bat after suffering through the injury, but was not at 100 percent running the bases.

Josh Donaldson homers, reaches four times in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson had gone more than two weeks since his last home run before going deep in a 4-3 loss to the Angels Friday.

Donaldson tied the game with his sixth inning solo home run, a shot that eventually sent the game into extras. He went 2 for 3 overall in the game, while added a pair of walks in the loss.  

Donaldson has found his swing again in the month of August, though he has just three home runs in 85 games. He is still hitting .294/.419/.482 with 12 RBI and nine runs scored in the month.
