The A's are adding another bat to the lineup this offseason as the club has agreed to terms on a one-year deal, pending physical, with infielder Trevor Plouffe, a source confirmed to CSNCalifornia on Tuesday night.

Plouffe, 30, has spent his whole seven-year MLB career with the Twins. He hit .260/.303/.420 with 12 home runs in 84 games during the 2016 season.
