As trade rumors continue to swirl, the Oakland Athletics shuffled their rotation in advance of the Monday afternoon trade deadline.

Jharel Cotton and Sonny Gray have been flipped, with Cotton set to come off the disabled list to start Sunday’s series finale against the Minnesota Twins. Gray is now slated to start Monday’s series opener against the San Francisco Giants in the event that he does not get traded.

Simon Castro, Frankie Montas and Josh Smith are the likely candidates to be sent down to open up a roster spot for Cotton. Jesse Hahn is on schedule to start Monday for Triple-A Nashville, so he could be recalled to pitch against the Giants in the event that Gray does get traded.jharel cottonMajor League BaseballMLBOakland AthleticsSonny Gray
