A's Sign Todd Walker

To add intrigue to the ever-changing carousel at 1B, the A's signed Todd Walker to a minor league contract.  Looks like Ruby may not be a lock at 1B after all.  

OAKLAND -- The Oakland A's today agreed to terms with infielder Todd Walker on a Minor League contract. Walker will join the club on Saturday for the A's spring training game in San Francisco.
Walker was with San Diego this spring and was released on March 26. He batted .225 (9 for 40) with no home runs and one RBI in 14 games for the Padres during the spring.

His 11-year Major League career also includes stops in Colorado (2000-01), Cincinnati (2001-02), Boston (2003), Chicago-NL (2004-06) and San Diego (2006). Walker batted a career high .316 with Minnesota in 1998 and hit a career high 17 home runs with Colorado and Cincinnati in 2001.
