Oakland Designates Eric Patterson For Assignment

Outfielder Eric Patterson has been designated for assignment by the Athletics, according to the team's official Twitter page.  The move comes as a result of Coco Crisp's activation from the disabled list.

Patterson joined the A's in 2008, coming from Chicago as a part of the Rich Harden trade.  Patterson had a slash line of .221/.299/.339 in 325 plate appearances with the team over the last three seasons.  With a .641 lifetime OPS and a below-average UZR/150, it's hard to see another club making a move for Patterson unless they need a pinch-runner --- Patterson is 22-for-24 in career stolen base attempts.
