ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Infielder Nick Punto has agreed to a one-year contract with the Oakland Athletics following a little more than a season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Punto's deal, announced Wednesday, includes an option for 2015 that could become guaranteed.
The 36-year-old was acquired by the Dodgers from Boston on Aug. 25, 2012, as part of the nine-player trade that sent Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez to Los Angeles. Punto hit .255 this year with two homers and 21 RBIs in 116 games.
He has a .248 career average with Philadelphia (2001-03), Minnesota (2004-10), St. Louis (2011), Boston (2012) and Los Angeles.
