OF Davis ready to help A's turn things around

Rajai Davis, who signed a one-year deal with the A's on Tuesday, is determined to bring experience and a "winning mentality" in his second stint with Oakland.

Athletics rank poorly

The A's have some young pitching to pay attention to, and don't have a lot of win-now trade value to use to upgrade their talent at the deadline -- especially if Sonny Gray doesn't turn things around at the beginning of next season. Bowden: Midwinter Power Rankings (Insider)

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Athletics agreed to a 1-year deal with OF Rajai Davis. Davis led the AL with 43 stolen bases with the Indians in 2016. He previously played 3 seasons with the Athletics, posting his best single-season WAR (3.3) with them in 2009. His last 2 AB in 2016 were a game-tying home run against Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman in the 8th inning and a two-out RBI single during a rally in the 10th inning of Game 7 of the World Series.

Who could be the Athletics' Ben Zobrist?

Oakland loves its multi-position platoons, and Chad Pinder looks like a guy that could fill that role. He can already play shortstop and second base, but should add some outfield to his versatility. A Zobrist for every team (Insider)

Happy Festivus to Oakland duo

Seinfeld fans know that Dec. 23 is the date when the "feats of strength" are held. It's therefore worth noting Khris Davis and Ryon Healy hit two of the seven longest home runs of 2016. Feats of strength

How the Encarnacion deal finally came together

Edwin Encarnacion can be happy that he has a great deal. But was Cleveland a sure thing? Not until Chris Antonetti and the Indians topped a surprising late offer from another club.

Athletics should be flipping the script

A team without a lot of money to spend like the A's should be building a great farm system or consistently looking for upside plays. Oakland hasn't done that enough in recent years, which has remained the case so far this offseason. Szymborski: Good winters for bad teams (Insider)

Is there any hope for baseball's basement dwellers?

The Braves are moving into a new park. The Twins have shaken up their leadership. But for the A's, Rays, Reds and Padres, it's looking bleak. How long will they be major league laughingstocks?

A's grading poor this winter

The new CBA didn't necessarily help the A's, and free agents have shown little interest in joining the team so far this offseason. Oakland will have to sign some mid-level free agents it can trade at the deadline for this to be a successful offseason, Jim Bowden writes. Midwinter report card (Insider)
