A’s To Sign Drew Rucinski

The A’s are in agreement with starter Drew Rucinski, pending a physical. It’s reportedly a one-year, $3MM guarantee for the Paragon Sports International client. The deal also contains a $5MM club option for the 2024 season.

Rucinski returns to the U.S. after four seasons in South Korea. The 6’2″ righty kicked around the majors in the middle of the last decade as a swing option. While Rucinski worked as a starter in the minors, he came out of the bullpen for six of seven appearances with the Angels in 2014-15. Rucisnki spent the next year in Triple-A with the Cubs organization before spending two years as a depth reliever. He pitched twice for the Twins in 2017 and logged 35 1/3 innings over 32 relief appearances for the Marlins the next season.

Snarky comment alert:

Gosh, the A's signed a player, whereas the Giants signed a player - and then didn't sign him, "because of an issue that came up during the physical". I wonder if the A's will be able to turn this possibly-accidental Giants' technique into a new market inefficiency, somehow. I betcha they're wracking their brains trying to.

"If we can just hack into the Giants' computer system and slightly alter the MRI results we can convince them to never extend any of their good players."

The A's could save a few more $ by not having numbers or names on the player uniforms. Just run some guys out there on minimum salary, who cares what their names are.

This is also a difficult problem for person A, to be able to find a complete solution for everything and still benefit himself. bubble shooter
