Aledmys Díaz agrees to 2-year deal with A’s

Aledmys Díaz is set to stay in the AL West. The veteran infielder has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $14.5 million deal with the Oakland A’s, according to MLB Network insider Joel Sherman. The club has not confirmed.

During his Astros tenure, Díaz was hampered by injuries, playing only 262 games in four seasons with Houston.

The 32-year-old batted .255/.313/.424 with 32 homers and 107 runs with the Astros from 2019-22, winning a World Series ring this past season in the club’s triumph over the Phillies.

I believe Diaz @7M is now the A's highest paid player by a mile. And he is a castoff utility infielder. I mean, why bother. Truly sad.

Jace Peterson is the only other player who has a signed contract (details unknown). Everyone else is arbitration-eligible or still pre-arbitration. But the Diaz deal does take the team's top payroll spot by eclipsing the deferred $5M they owe Trevor Rosenthal this year.

Alas they are poor. No games in the winter means no tickets or beer or parking and thus no money. If only there was some other source of revenue, centrally managed by the league, that would come to teams from non-local incomes. But no, they have to pay retired guys and children. It's a shame they can't hire the smartest guy in the game (ha ha!) to help make things work. Poor Oakland.
