You won't believe this: the Mariners have made a trade. The A's sent 1B/3B/DH Ryon Healy to the Mariners for reliever Emilio Pagan and 17-year-old minor league infielder Alexander Campos. Healy is a low-OBP slugger, the kind of player readily available in today's game, but the Mariners needed a first baseman and he provides a low-cost alternative there if the Mariners don't land somebody better in free agency. Pagan had a solid rookie season with a 3.22 ERA and impressive 56-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings. Healy would be one of the worst everyday first basemen in the league and given Jerry DiPoto's trade history he's not even guaranteed to last the offseason on the Mariners roster.
Bruce Maxwell pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct in Arizona. General manager David Forst said he still expects Maxwell to be the A's starting catcher in 2018.
Puk has the first-round pedigree, drafted sixth overall in 2016, and in his first full season in the minors, he reached Double-A while striking out 184 in 125 innings.
Olson is a real, legitimate prospect, and he could and should be a part of a brighter Oakland future. However, his home run rate will be hard to sustain.
The A's are searching for an outfielder and are reportedly interested in Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna as the Marlins look to trim their payroll.
A's outfielder Mark Canha expected to be fully healthy by spring training after undergoing wrist surgery.
Healy's performance dipped to .271/.302/.451 in his first full major league season, which could limit his trade value. However, he would be a nice bench bat for a team that leans left in its lineup.
The A's had one of the best groups of under-25 hitters in baseball, but it was an unsuspenseful slog to last place -- they didn't have a winning month until September.

A's name Kotsay QC coach

Coming off one of his best seasons, second baseman Jed Lowrie had his $6 million option for 2018 exercised by the A's on Thursday.
