      Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Agrees to one-year deal

      Alonso and the Athletics agreed to a one-year deal Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The deal is reportedly worth $2.65 million.

He's coming off of a season in which he hit .282/.361/.381 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 2013 games.
