Athletics' Jermaine Curtis: Joins A's on NRI deal
Curtis has signed a minor league contract with the A's that includes an invite to spring training, CSN Bay Area reports.
A fifth-round pick in 2008, he broke through to the majors briefly with the Cardinals in 2013 but has been stuck down at Triple-A ever since. Curtis has routinely posted high on-base percentages, upping his mark to .404 with the Reds' Louisville affiliate in 2016. However, he does not have the other tools necessary to really capitalize on the strong approach.
