A’s DFA Tommy Everidge

The A's designated first baseman Tommy Everidge for assignment today, according to beat reporter Mychael Urban (via Twitter). The 26-year-old hit .224/.302/.365 in 97 major league plate appearances last year. He has a more impressive minor league line, however. In parts of six seasons, Everidge hit .280/.355/.471. He lit the upper minors up last year (.958 OPS), so he does have some offensive potential.

The A's made the move to clear a roster spot for Jack Cust, according to Lisa Winston of MLB.com.

    Hope the O’s get him and bring him into camp. Could even stick with the major league roster

  6. Ah, yeah that makes sense. Tommy is sadly AAAA and cant really play defense. A team looking for a cheap backup DH might have some use for him.

    The guy has had some good numbers in the Minors but he has been really old for the competition hes been playing.

    Tommy played great defense at Firstbase and Thirdbase. He throws in the low 90s as well. 2009 was his coming out party. As someone who’s been following him since his college days, I can assure you he has some serious talent.

    True but 23/24 in the Cal League with a call up in for AA and spending the next year in AA at 25 AND THEN spending almost half of the season in AA at 26 is old for the league.
