Last week I eulogized the 12-year career of Brandon Inge.
Well, after being released by the Detroit Tigers, Inge has agreed to sign with the Oakland Athletics.
This will be a good fit. Inge has the ability to help-out at third base, second base, outfield and catcher.
The A's will likely place Inge at his favourite position - third base.
Former Tiger, Scott Sizemore was slated to be Oakland's go-to-guy at third but, unfortunately, he suffered a season-ending knee injury. The Athletics have experimented with Josh Donaldson, Eric Sogard and Luke Hughes at the hot corner - the result has been 8 errors and a combined batting average of .111.
