MESA, Ariz. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics signed outfielder Robbie Grossman to a one-year, $2 million contract Friday.
To make room for Grossman on the 40-man roster, right-hander Daniel Gossett was placed on the 60-day injured list.
Grossman spent the last three seasons with the Twins. He batted .273 with five home runs and 48 RBIs last season.
The Athletics also signed infielder Cliff Pennington to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.
Pennington returns to the A’s, where he began his big league career in 2008. He has compiled a .242 batting average in 11 seasons with the A’s, Diamondbacks, Angels, Reds and Blue Jays.
Gossett appeared in five games for the A’s last year before undergoing Tommy John reconstruction surgery Aug. 1. He went 0-3 with a 5.18 ERA.
