Andy LaRoche Goes To Oakland

According to a team tweet, third baseman Andy LaRoche, 27, signed a minor league deal with the A's, and has an invite to camp. it's not likely that he'll be knocking Kevin Kouzmanoff out of work, but he does have a shot as a back-up.

LaRoche had a .206/4/16 slash last year, losing his job to Pedro Alvarez, and a lifetime line of .224/22/108. He was a key component of the current FO's original albatross, the Jay Bay trade.
