What just happened? A's, Nick Punto in the same sentence? What does it mean for Jed Lowrie?

Hey everyone, athleticsperson01 here to report about an Oakland A's signing. Today, according to mlbtraderumors.com, Nick Punto and the green and gold reached a 1 yr agreement just short of $3 million, as well as an option to sign for 2015. Punto, 36, played with the Los Angeles Dodgers last year and posted an average of .255 with 2 HR, and 21 RBI, in 116 games. If the A's happen to face left handed pitchers, Punto batted .309 in 2013 against them. Comparing to right handed pitchers, last year, just .209. What does this mean for Jed Lowrie, though? Also according to mlbtraderumors.com, the St. Louis Cardinals are interested. Is the A's infield of Alberto Callaspo, Eric Sogard, Jed Lowrie, and now Nick Punto, too much? Let's think about this situation. Callaspo and Sogard can primarily play 2nd base and flip flop depending on matchups. The same can be for Lowrie and Punto at shortstop. It could be the other way around with Lowrie and Punto manning second with Sogard and Callaspo at shortstop. Thanks again guys for reading this A's transaction and all comments are welcome!
