SF Chronicle: A’s Interest in Yelich, Ozuna

One item on Oakland’s wish list this winter is an outfielder with several years of team control remaining, sources told The Chronicle on Wednesday. And with Miami’s new ownership looking to shed payroll, the A’s have interest in Marcell Ozuna and, though their preference is for a right-handed hitter, possibly Christian Yelich.

Oakland will have money to spend after trading many of its higher-priced players in July. Plus, Billy Butler’s contract is now off the books. Though the A’s won’t entertain moving any of their core young major-leaguers, apart from designated hitter-corner infielder Ryon Healy, the team has compiled some good minor-league talent over the past several years and could be willing to part with some of it in exchange for a big bat.
