SI.com is reporting that Matt Holliday has been acquired by the Oakland A's, ruling him out as an option in left field.

No word yet on the package that was shipped to Colorado, but the A's have several young outfielders, one of whom I assume was involved.

The Associated Press, citing a person familiar with the negotiations, said reliever Huston Street, lefty starter Greg Smith and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are among the players who had been discussed in recent days. The AP says Holliday will take a physical on Tuesday.

Despite national speculation to the contrary, it isn't a huge surprise that Holliday won't be a Phil.

But at least it is now completely off the table.
