The Oakland Athletics agreed to a one-year, $775,000 contract with outfielder Jake Smolinski on Wednesday evening.

Smolinski was with the Athletics during the 2017 season, but was sidelined for the majority of the year because he had right shoulder surgery during spring training. He returned in September and played in 16 games. In 27 at-bats, Smolinski batted .259.

The 28-year-old has had partial stints in the major leagues over the past four seasons. Smolinski’s best year came in 2016 when he hit .238 with seven home runs and 27 RBIs in 99 games played for the Athletics.

Now that he is fully healthy, Smolinski will get the chance to compete for a starting spot in the Athletics outfield.
