The A’s have signed 29-year old lefty swinging infielder Scott Moore to a minor league deal. Moore played in 72 games for he Astros last year and he was 52 of 201 (.259 avg, .778 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 9 homers and 26 RBIs. He has now played in 152 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 93 of 385 (.242 avg, .712 OPS) with 40 runs scored, 16 homers, 53 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Moore can handle playing 1B, 2B and 3B defensively and he has some pop in his bat. Moore will get a shot to win a bench job next spring for the A’s. This is Billy Beane’s kind of guy.
