OAKLAND, Calif. -- Outfielder Sam Fuld has reached agreement on a minor league contract with the Oakland Athletics that includes an invitation to big league spring training.

Assistant general manager David Forst confirmed the deal Tuesday. Fuld, 32, would receive an $800,000, one-year contract if he's added to the 40-man roster.

The two-time defending AL West champion A's have a deep outfield already, with returning starters Yoenis Cespedes in left field, Coco Crisp in centre and Josh Reddick in right.

Fuld batted .199 with two home runs and 17 RBIs in 119 games for Tampa Bay last season.

Also Tuesday, Oakland promoted Farhan Zaidi to assistant general manager/director of baseball operations. The 37-year-old, an economics whiz entering his 10th season in the front office, has been director of baseball operations for the club since 2009.
