A’s sign Scott Moore

Scott Moore, who hit .259 with nine homers and 26 RBIs in a part-time role with the Astros last season, has signed  a Minor League deal with the A’s with an invitation to Spring Training.

Moore, who was outrighted by the Astros earlier this month, played in 72 games last season for Houston, starting games at five different positions – third base, first base, right field, second base and left field.

“I had quite a few offers and Oakland called me and talked to me and basically there, guys in my situation have been known to get pretty good opportunities to play,” he said. “Also, I’m going into my 12th season and I’ve never really anywhere remotely close to home (southern California) and that was pretty exciting, too.”
