OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Outfielder Emil Brown and the Oakland Athletics agreed Friday to a one-year, $1.45 million deal.
Brown, a former A's amateur draft pick who spent the last three seasons with Kansas City, also could make up to $1.5 million in performance bonuses.
The 33-year-old Brown hit .257 with six homers and a team-leading 62 RBI in 113 games last season, but became a free agent last month when the Royals declined to tender a contract offer to him.
The A's have a vacancy in their outfield after trading Nick Swisher to the Chicago White Sox for three prospects last week. To make room for Brown on the 40-man roster, Oakland designated outfielder Danny Putnam for assignment.
