A's Close to Signing Russ Springer

Link: A's Close to Signing Russ Springer

According to the story, "the A's are close to fortifying their bullpen" by signing 40-year-old free agent reliever Russ Springer.

Citing a major league source, Fox Sports reported the A's and Springer were "making progress, but not done" negotiating.

In 70 games with the St. Louis Cardinals last season, Springer went 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA.

He's a Type-A free agent, but wouldn't cost the A's any compensation since St. Louis didn't offer him salary arbitration.

What do you guys think of the move?
