      Athletics' Eric Sogard: Avoids arbitration with A's

      Sogard signed a one-year contract with the A's on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. On any other team, Sogard may not have reached even 200 at-bats in 2015, but he logged 372 for the A's, batting .247/.294/.304 with one homer and six steals. He does have some value, defensively, at second base, and will be somewhat cheap in his second arb year, but the A's would be wise to scale back his playing time in 2016.
