OAKLAND -- The Oakland A’s agreed to terms with first baseman Yonder Alonso on a one-year contract for the 2016 season, the club announced today.
Alonso batted .282 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 103 games with San Diego last year in a season that was interrupted by two stints on the disabled list. He was out from May 9 to June 1 with a bone bruise in his right shoulder and Sept. 14 through the end of the season with a lower-back strain. The 28-year-old left-handed hitter made a team-leading 92 starts at first base for the Padres and also made two starts at third base.
The A’s have three remaining players eligible for arbitration including Josh Reddick, Fernando Rodriguez and Danny Valencia.
