According to a high-ranking A's source, Erubiel Durazo has been resigned to a one-year deal. I wasn't given the financial terms of the deal.
Good thing since the A's need Ruby's pop in the lineup, and I guess we have our answer as to who the 1B/DH combination will be. It will be Hatteberg and Durazo.
That's a whole lot of OBP in the A's lineup. From Kendall to Kotsay to Durazo to Chavez to Hatteberg to even Swisher, the A's should create quite a logjam on the basepath this season.
What a beautiful sight it will be.
