Will Ryon Healy step up in 2017?

Should Athletics have Joyce lead off?

Rajai Davis led the AL in steals last season, but he's a low-OBP guy, David Schoenfield notes. Meanwhile, Matt Joyce had a .403 OBP with the Pirates in 2016, making him a solid candidate for the role. Unconventional leadoff options

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.
