Oakland Athletics Sign Outfielder

The Oakland Athletics are continuing to add to their depth, as they have signed Trenton Brooks to a minor league contract. 

Brooks spent this past season with Triple-A Columbus, where he had 11 home runs, 48 RBIs, and a .272 batting average. Overall, it was a very solid year for the 6-foot outfielder, and now he will be aiming to continue this success with the A's organization from here.

Given the fact that Brooks can play right field, center field, and first base, he very well could make Oakland's roster as a utility player. Time will tell what happens on that front, but overall, this looks like it could be a good little signing for the A's.
