A's sign Jason Pridie to minor league deal

The A’s have signed Jason Pridie to a minor league deal, Adam Rubin said on Twitter.

Last week, the Mets outrighted Pridie and Nick Evans to Triple-A Buffalo, both of whom had the option to declare free agency. Sandy Alderson told reporters yesterday that Pridie declared free agency, although he said there was a chance he could be back with the organization.

Pridie hit .231 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 208 at bats over 101 games this past season.
