A’s to Sign LHP Hideki Okajima to Minor-League Deal


As was rumored for a week or so, the A’s and free agent lefty Hideki Okajima have agreed on a minor-league deal (as confirmed today by Ken Rosenthal). 

Okajima spent all of 2012 in Japan, tallying a 0.94 ERA, 6.8 K/9, & 1.1 BB/9 with the Softbank Hawks. 

Pending a physical, Okajima will join the A’s in Spring Training and seek to make the big-league squad, which currently features lefty relievers Sean Doolittle, Jerry Blevins, Travis Blackley and Jordan Norberto (so something might have to happen personnel-wise should Okajima make the team).
