On Saturday the Athletics came to terms on minor league contracts with Ryan Goins, Nate Orf and Zach Lee.
The biggest name of the trio is Goins who appeared in 52 games for the White Sox last year. Goins was barely serviceable during his time with the Blue Jays from 2013-2017 and slumped along to a .250/.333/.347 slash line with two homers last year.
Joining Goins on a minor league deal and likely at Triple-A will be Nate Orf.
Orf began his career with the Brewers and spent 15 games with that big league club back in 2018. Last year he posted a .272/.399/.410 line with 11 homers at Triple-A. He could see big league time with the A’s this season.
The A’s also added pitcher Zach Lee. It has been a few years since Lee last pitched in the majors. Last year he struggled while pitching in the minors for the Mets.
