Athletics Make First Big Move of MLB Free Agency, Land Petit

  • Pin It

The MLB Hot Stove has been rather cold this winter thus far.

However, we finally have our first big signing of the free agency period.

The Oakland Athletics have signed reliever Yusmeiro Petit to shore up their young bullpen. Petit has been one of the most reliable bullpen arms in all of baseball the past few seasons and will fit in quite well with the Athletics.

The biggest key for as to why Billy Beane and the A’s decided to sign Petit would be the mere fact if he has another great season or even a half of a season, he becomes a big trade chip. Beane LOVES to trade players away more than a germaphobe loves to wash their hands.

Petit may not seem like a big signing to most, but this could be the first domino to fall.
