OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with first baseman Yonder Alonso to avoid salary arbitration.

The A's also announced Friday they have tendered contracts to all remaining players on their roster.

Alonso batted .253 with 34 doubles, seven homers and 56 RBIs in 156 games in his first season with Oakland last year.

Oakland also outrighted infielder Rangel Ravelo to Triple-A Nashville and will bring him to spring training as a non-roster invitee.

The A's have four remaining arbitration-eligible players on their roster: outfielder Khris Davis, catcher Stephen Vogt, and pitchers Sonny Gray and Liam Hendriks.
