Heard an interesting rumor the other day about Boston considering signing Trevor Plouffe to a 1 year deal for $2-3M and use him as a utility role. Sounds pretty cheap for a decent veteran who can fill in at 1st or 3rd and you could throw him in the outfield if you had no bench players left. There could be a few more teams that could use him at that price.

Plouffe will find a job and could really be a nice find for a team if he's healthy and able to produce like a healthy Trevor Plouffe can.

So good luck to you, Plouffe!  Hope you have a great comeback season!

Most likely the A's will bank that Plouffe can bring them something back in return. Waiting to see the salary. Probably better than the $2-4 million was rumored elsewhere. Watch, the A's will get more for Trevor in half-a-season than the Twins got in two trying to move him.

Good for Trevor and good luck. It looks like he should get a lot of playing time.

Always felt that Valencia and Plouffe were pretty much interchangeable.  Apparently so do the A's

I'm glad he was able to sign a contract... Thought it may be a lonely winter for him until early March. Good luck to him.

Wrong,  Trevor is a much better fielder.  Valencia to me is a stone statue.

From what I read, Valencia has reputation for having a poor clubhouse presence / not being a good team player.

And he's not as good a defensive player as Plouffe became after learning his brand new position (that he should have been moved to way earlier).

Good for Plouffe - I can really cheer for him in Oakland as well.

Excellent news. Hopefully he can have a great year, despite playing home games in that monster of a park.

Maybe the A's will take another of our castaway corner infielders? Oakland, may I present to you Mr. Joe Mauer.

I'm just happy he's no longer on the team.  Nothing against the guy personally or even professionally, but his mere presence on the roster last year was a domino effect that set the team back considerably.  I hope he has a great year, I'm just thrilled this move is finally done.

It happens. The Twins got more for Eduardo Nunez than the Yankees did.

 

Heck, if they catch a break and play their cards right, they might even get something for Brandon Kintzler; the Brewers probably never even considered that would ever be a possibility.
