Springer deal official

The A’s finally announced 40-year-old Russ Springer will join their bullpen, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal believed to be worth at least $3 million. His addition doesn’t carry the impact of names like Matt Holliday and Jason Giambi, the team’s other significant acquisitions this offseason. But he’s expected to play a major role for their relief corps.

To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the A’s released reliever Andrew Brown, who it was revealed just a day earlier needs shoulder surgery and will be sidelined for a prolonged period.
