(WGGB) — As the Major League Baseball trade deadline looms for later today, two members of the Red Sox are heading west.

The Red Sox say that Sox pitcher Jon Lester and outfielder Jonny Gomes have been traded to the Oakland A’s. Oakland will also receive cash considerations.

In exchange, the reports indicate that Boston would receive A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and a draft pick.

In 101 games this season with Oakland, Cespedes has a .256  average, with 102 hits, 17 home runs and 67 RBI’s.

The non-waiver trade deadline is Thursday at 4 p.m. Eastern.
