A’s reportedly trade Aaron Miles to Reds for Willy Taveras, Adam Rosales

ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting the A’s have traded infielder Aaron Miles to the Cincinnati Reds for outfielder Willy Taveras and third baseman Adam Rosales. I don’t have anything confirmed at the moment, but will update soon. Rosales has played all over the infield, and could be the backup utility man the A’s have sought, particularly for shortstop. Not sure how Taveras’ addition would affect the possible acquisition of outfielder Gabe Gross, which was reported by mlb.com. … Again, nothing concrete on this right now …
