A's Sign Springer; Release Brown
Springer is the only reliever on the A's current roster with more than four years of major league experience. At age 40, he joins Jason Giambi as the only players on the A's current roster over the age of 35.
Springer made his major league debut in 1992 as a member of the New York Yankees. He has pitched for seven teams during his career (New York, the Angels, Philadelphia, Houston, Arizona, Atlanta and St. Louis) and he has pitched 797.2 major league innings.
Brown was released by the A's the day after he revealed to the San Francisco Chronicle that he would be undergoing shoulder surgery. He missed the last 10 weeks of the 2008 season with shoulder problems. Brown was 1-0 with a 3.09 ERA in 31 appearances last season and has a 3.84 ERA in 73 major league appearances in his career. The A's could try to bring Brown back on a minor league deal down the road.
