A’s Sign Lenny DiNardo

The A's signed lefty Lenny DiNardo to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. DiNardo, a "popular guy" in the clubhouse, returns to the A's after spending last year in Kansas City. 

The 30-year-old pitched for the A's in 2007-08 and had his most successful major league stint in Oakland. He managed a 4.61 ERA in 154.1 innings over the course of his two seasons by the Bay. The A's will be able to retain DiNardo as an arbitration-eligible player after next season if they so choose, since he won't have enough service time to file for free agency.

Not only did the A's sign DiNardo today, they lost Jay Marshall to the Mets on waivers and designated Tommy Everidge for assignment. Click here for more on which infielders the A's are pursuing.
