Oakland A's avoid arbitration with Josh Reddick, Fernando Rodriguez

The Oakland A's agreed to terms with their last two arbitration-eligible players for 2016: Josh Reddick and Fernando Rodriguez.

The Oakland A's signed their last two remaining arbitration-eligible players on Friday, agreeing to terms with Josh Reddick and Fernando Rodriguez. Reddick's contract is worth a reported $6.57 million and Rodriguez's deal is worth a reported $1.05 million.

Reddick is coming off of arguably his best season in the major leagues. The A's right-fielder hit .272/.333/.449 with 20 homers, 10 stolen bases and only 65 strike-outs in 149 games. The 149 games played were the most Reddick has played in a season since his first year with the A's in 2012. He is eligible for free agency at the end of the 2016 season.

Rodriguez began the 2015 season as a non-roster player, but he earned his way back onto the A's 40-man roster and made 56 appearances for the A's. He had a 3.84 ERA and a 65:24 K:BB. His FIP was 3.08.
