OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have agreed to one-year contracts with four players in arbitration: infielders Jed Lowrie and Brandon Moss, outfielder Craig Gentry and reliever Luke Gregerson.
Gregerson's deal announced Friday is worth $5,065,000, Lowrie's is for $5.25 million, Moss' contract is for $4.1 million and Gentry's is for $1,145,000.
The switch-hitting Lowrie batted .290 with 15 home runs and 75 RBIs last year. Moss hit a team-leading 30 home runs and finished second with 87 RBIs while hitting .256.
Gregerson was acquired from San Diego on Dec. 3 for slugger Seth Smith after going 6-8 with four saves and a 2.71 ERA. And the A's got Gentry from Texas in a four-player trade on Dec. 3 after he batted .280 with two home runs and 22 RBIs.
The only Oakland player remaining in arbitration is right fielder Josh Reddick. He asked for $3.25 million and the A's offered $2 million.
