Brandon Inge agrees to deal with Oakland Athletics

In Inge, the A’s gain experience at third base as well as a player with some versatility. Inge must first pass a physical and the teams must complete paperwork.

Inge, an All-Star in 2009, was hitting .100 with one home run and two RBI in nine games. He’ll turn 35 on May 19 and is expected to join the A’s today in Boston. Scott Sizemore, the A’s projected starter at third, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the team’s first full-squad workout on Feb. 27.

Inge, remarkably, represents an upgrade for Oakland at third, where Manager Bob Melvin had platooned players who were hitting a combined .111 with eight errors.
