Twins start series vs. floundering A's ahead of trade deadline

(TSX / STATS) -- OAKLAND, Calif. -- Two teams that could be trade partners will meet on the field when the contending Minnesota Twins and floundering Oakland Athletics begin a three-game series Friday night.

Recently acquired left-hander Jaime Garcia of the Twins will face A's rookie Daniel Gossett in the series opener.

The teams enter play Friday on similar downward spirals, but for different reasons.
