Athletics' Chris Parmelee: Agrees to minor league deal with A's
Parmelee signed a minor league contract with the A's on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
The Yankees gave Parmelee the call in June after Mark Teixeira hit the DL, but he didn't even make it a week before going down with a hamstring injury. Parmelee then battled back spasms late in the year, but if healthy come the spring, the 28-year-old could make a push for a role at first base. He's hit .248/.313/.405 in parts of six major league seasons.
