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.
