  • Athletics' Ryan Noda: Picked up by Oakland

    Noda was selected by the A's during the Rule 5 draft Wednesday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The Dodgers opted not to add Noda to the 40-man roster, and the A's picked him second during the Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old had a .259/.396/.474 slash line with 25 home runs, 90 RBI and 20 stolen bases at the Triple-A level last year, and he'll now receive a major-league chance in Oakland.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Finds work in Oakland

    Diaz and the Athletics agreed Wednesday on a two-year, $14.5 million contract, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The terms of Diaz's contract suggests that the Athletics likely envision him serving as a fixture in the lineup in 2023, after he largely served as a utility man in Houston over the past four seasons. He was a near-league-average hitter this past season, slashing .243/.287/.403 (96 wRC+) with 12 home runs, one stolen base, 38 RBI and 35 runs in 327 plate appearances. Diaz made at least five starts at every infield position as well as left field, but it's unclear where Oakland initially intends to use him primarily in 2023.

  • Athletics' Chad Smith: Traded to Oakland

    Smith was traded to the Athletics from the Rockies in exchange for Jeff Criswell on Tuesday.

    Smith received his first taste of major-league action in 2022, recording a 7.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP over 18 innings out of the bullpen. Smith has always been able to strike out batters at an exceptional rate, though he's often struggled to limit walks.

  • Athletics' Jace Peterson: Lands in Oakland

    Peterson signed a two-year contract with the Athletics on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Peterson recorded a 76 wRC+ through the end of his age-29 season, but he's posted a 98 wRC+ since turning 30 prior to the 2020 campaign. That doesn't make him much more than a part-time player, though the Athletics have enough holes on their roster that Peterson could feature regularly. Between his mediocre bat, tough home park and weak surrounding lineup, even a regular role would leave Peterson without much fantasy appeal outside of deep leagues.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Recovering from shoulder surgery

    Kaprielian underwent offseason surgery to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder, Evan Webeck of The Mercury News reports.

    Kaprielian's rehab is reportedly proceeding as expected, and he's on track to be ready for the start of spring training. "It's something that he dealt with in the past," said manager Mark Kotsay. "I don't think it's a concern. I think it's something the organization and him felt strongly about moving forward with." Kotsay noted that although Kaprielian's rehab is going well, he doesn't yet have an exact timeline for when the right-hander will be back at 100 percent. His status will be worth monitoring as spring camp approaches.

  • Athletics' Jasseel De La Cruz: Joins Oakland on MiLB deal

    De La Cruz signed a minor-league contract with the A's on Tuesday, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports.

    De La Cruz spent 2022 with Atlanta on a minor-league deal and will now make his way out west. The 25-year-old has a 7.21 ERA across 68.2 innings at the Triple-A level across the past two seasons.

  • Athletics' Kevin Cron: Back in affiliated ball with Oakland

    Cron signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 8.

    Cron, the younger brother of the Rockies' C.J. Cron, spent the past two seasons in Asia. After playing in 2021 with the Hiroshima Carp of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, Cron moved over to Korea in 2022, joining the SSG Landers. Over 67 games with the Landers before being released in July, Cron slashed .222/.255/.420 with 11 home runs in 259 plate appearances. The 29-year-old will likely begin the 2023 campaign with Triple-A Las Vegas or Double-A Midland.

  • Athletics' Pablo Reyes: Catches on with Oakland

    Reyes signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 14.

    After being outrighted off the Brewers' 40-man roster in late October, Reyes elected free agency rather than sticking around in the Milwaukee organization. Though he won't immediately get a spot on Oakland's 40-man roster, Reyes should have the opportunity to compete for a utility role with the big club in spring training. Reyes saw action in six games at the MLB level in 2022, going 4-for-15 at the dish.

  • Athletics' Rico Garcia: Links up with Oakland

    Garcia signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 14.

    Garcia is expected to open the 2023 campaign at Triple-A Las Vegas, though he'll likely get the opportunity to attend Oakland's big-league camp this spring as a non-roster invitee. He made six appearances out of the Baltimore bullpen in 2022 but otherwise spent the majority of the season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he produced a 2.34 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 34.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Claimed by Oakland

    Rooker was claimed off waivers by the Athletics on Thursday.

    Rooker was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Tuesday but will land a spot on the Athletics' 40-man roster. He appeared in 16 major-league games between the Padres and Royals last year, and it's possible that he's forced to begin the 2023 season at Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Harris was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Harris turns 26 in December and has made just eight starts at Triple-A, logging a 6.35 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 39:17 K:BB in 28.1 innings. Given his control issues and age, it might make sense for Harris to work in low-leverage situations out of the big-league bullpen at some point in 2023.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Added to 40-man roster

    Butler was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    A physically impressive corner outfielder and designated hitter, Butler hit .270/.357/.468 with 11 home runs, 13 steals and a 31.5 percent strikeout rate in his age-21/22 season at High-A. Now that he is on the 40-man roster, the clock will be ticking on Butler to adjust to a higher level of pitching at Double-A.

  • Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Loses 40-man spot

    The Athletics outrighted Jefferies (elbow) to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

    Oakland removed Jefferies from the 60-day injured list last week, but it was strictly a procedural move while the team weighed whether or not to tender him a contract for the 2023 season ahead of Friday's deadline. Given that Jefferies underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career back in September and had turned in poor ratios (5.75 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 9.5 K-BB%) over his 56.1 innings in the big leagues, it likely wasn't a tough decision for the Athletics to remove him from their 40-man roster. He'll stick in the organization and while he spends the entire 2023 season rehabbing from elbow surgery.

  • Athletics' Collin Wiles: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Wiles (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Wiles was called up by Oakland in mid-September and appeared in four games before he finished the season on the injured list. The right-hander was a starter at Triple-A Salt Lake for most of the year and had a 5.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 106:27 K:BB in 143.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Sam Selman: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Selman was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Selman spent the final two weeks of the season in the big leagues but is no longer on the 40-man roster. He appeared in 16 games for the A's last season and had a 4.91 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB across 18.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Norge Ruiz: Sent to Triple-A

    Ruiz was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The right-hander finished the season in the majors but won't stick on the 40-man roster through the offseason. Ruiz appeared in 14 games out of the bullpen last season and had a 7.11 ERA, 1.95 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB over 19 innings.

  • Athletics' Austin Pruitt: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Pruitt was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Pruitt appeared in 39 games for Oakland in 2022 but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster through the offseason. He had a 4.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB across 55.1 innings.
