[EDITOR'S NOTE: This one is hard for me. Kotsay was one of my favorite A's in his time here, which was no small feat on his part considering that I really, really hated giving up Ramon Hernandez for him. At the same time, this is an awesome move by Beane and company. Who knows what Kotsay might provide this year and this gives the A's a chance to see what they have in Denorfia.- Blez]
Kotsay apparently passed his physical, and the mystery throw-in low-minors pitcher has been identified: the A's, in addition to Devine, get RHP Jamie Richmond.
Prospect/minors gurus, any info on Richmond?
