Deichmann was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Friday.

Deichmann joined Oakland's 60-man player pool this past season but didn't get the chance to make his major-league debut. The 25-year-old has yet to play above the Double-A level and hasn't produced an above-average batting line above short-season ball, making for a fairly unimpressive resume for a corner outfielder.
