OAKLAND -- The Oakland A’s agreed to terms with first baseman Yonder Alonso on a one-year contract for the 2016 season, the club announced today.

Alonso batted .282 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 103 games with San Diego last year in a season that was interrupted by two stints on the disabled list.  He was out from May 9 to June 1 with a bone bruise in his right shoulder and Sept. 14 through the end of the season with a lower-back strain.  The 28-year-old left-handed hitter made a team-leading 92 starts at first base for the Padres and also made two starts at third base.
