A’s - Signed Cameron, Bozied
Oakland A’s - Signed P Kevin Cameron and 1B Tagg Bozied to minor-league contracts.
These could possibly be more than minor-league filling moves, especially the former.
Cameron picked an excellent situation to be in. He’s a decent groundball pitcher (though not as groundbally as, say, Brandon Webb) and the A’s should have a good infield defense once again. Cameron sprained his UCL last season and never got a chance to get his job back. He’s still yet to give up a home run in the majors in 68 innings. I was actually quite surprised that he passed through waivers - there are dozens of players who are on 40-man rosters that aren’t anywhere near as useful as Cameron is. Good move here, though I expect the A’s won’t have a ton of leads to protect.
Bozied, on the other hand, didn’t exactly pick the best organization. While the A’s are more willing than most teams to give minor league veterans a chance, Jack Cust is a much better player who also plays Bozied best position (DH) and the team is apparently showing the player at Bozied’s third least-bad position (Daric Barton) a lot of leeway. Not a good park for a player whose value comes primarily from home runs.
