The A’s have signed 34-year old righty starter/reliever Brian Gordon to a minor league deal. Gordon pitched in South Korea last year. Gordon last pitched in the majors in 2011 for the Yankees. He started 2 games for the Yankees in 2011 and he was 0-1 with a 5.23 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Gordon has now pitched in 5 games (2 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 0-1 with a 4.40 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Gordon will have to likely start the 2013 in the minors and work his way back to the show.
