Court signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Tuesday, Alex Coffey of The Athletic reports. As a member of the Mariners organization last season, Court reached the majors for the first time at 31 years old. He didn't stick around in Seattle for long, logging just 25 plate appearances before he was outrighted off the 40-man roster less than two months after his debut. Court is capable of playing every infield spot in addition to left field, so he'll likely serve as a utility bat for Triple-A Las Vegas as he heads to a new AL West organization.
Court was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Court was designated for assignment Tuesday and cleared waivers quickly, hardly a surprise for a 31-year-old with just 12 big-league games under his belt. He'll remain as organizational depth for the Mariners.
Court was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Court was promoted to the big-league club at the beginning of September when rosters expanded, but he saw just seven at-bats over four games before getting kicked off the 40-man roster.
The Mariners recalled Court from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. Court was one of five players added to the Mariners' roster in the first wave of September callups. The 31-year-old rookie previously appeared in eight games for the Mariners, going 4-for-17 with a home run. He'll offer depth at the corner-infield and corner-outfield spots but likely won't be in line to make more than a handful of starts per week in the final month of the season.
Court was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Court got called up to the Mariners on July 26 and earned 18 plate appearances during his time with the team. The highlight of his stint came Friday, when he recorded his first major-league home run. The 31-year-old was optioned to clear room on the 25-man roster for Dee Gordon, who is returning from a stay on the injured list.
