Contending Dodgers get Rich Hill, Josh Reddick from A's

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The contending Los Angeles Dodgers boosted their depleted rotation Monday, getting left-hander Rich Hill and right fielder Josh Reddick from the Oakland Athletics on Monday for a trio of pitching prospects.

The deal was announced two hours before the deadline for completing trades without waivers.

The A's received minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas, who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year.

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 hasn't 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. Hill will eventually go into a rotation that is missing injured ace Clayton Kershaw.

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 RBIs. This was his fifth year with the A's 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 A's, 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.
