The A's busy offseason might soon go international.
Oakland could be targeting second baseman Hector Olivera, according to a FOXSports.com report.
The 29-year-old is reportedly expected to hold his first open showcase at the Giants' academy in the Dominican Republic from Jan. 21-22.
Olivera, listed at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, has not yet been cleared to sign with an MLB team. He left Cuba last September but still needs to clear a few hurdles before he can be declared a free agent.
There are some health concerns for Olivera, who reportedly missed the entire 2012-13 season with thrombosis in his left biceeps -- a potentially serious condition that blocks blood flow.
He returned last year and hit .316 with a .412 on-base percentage in 273 plate appearances with seven home runs, 38 walks and 25 strikeouts, though he spent the majority of his games as the designated hitter.
The A's currently have middle infielders Marcus Semien, Ben Zobrist, Eric Sogard and Tyler Ladendorf on their 40-man roster.
