PHOENIX -- Josh Reddick took some batting practice swings Sunday at the Oakland Athletics spring training camp and, the way the ball was jumping off his bat, it was hard to tell he had a troublesome wrist last season. Evan Longoria Jersey . The injury now behind him, Reddick and the Oakland Athletics avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $2.7 million, one-year contract Sunday. The 26-year-old outfielder had asked for $3.25 million when the sides swapped figures last month and had been offered $2 million. "Its a huge weight off my shoulders," Reddick said. "We battled with negotiations but I had all the confidence in the world that we werent going to make this a nasty court affair. They made it clear that they werent going to do that. From the get-go it was very comforting for me . happy to have that out of the way now and get back to playing ball." Reddick hit .226 with 12 homers and 56 RBIs in 114 games last year, when he went to the disabled list twice because of a sprained right wrist that required off-season surgery. He made $510,000. The As had hoped for more production. Acquired from Boston before the 2012 season, Reddick had 32 homers and 85 RBIs in his first season with Oakland, when he earned a Gold Glove. "More just piece of mind for him to get that out of the way," As manager Bob Melvin said. "You dont want to start camp with that weighing on your mind. It was going to get done, just glad it got done where both sides are happy with it and now he can just move on and start playing baseball." Melvin said Reddick looks a little stronger this season after putting on some additional pounds from weightlifting. Reddick regrets not taking care of his wrist earlier, when it first started to hurt. He said he should have gone on the disabled list right after the injury instead of resting it and then continuing to play. "Im not going to try to set any expectations, Im just going to try and put last year behind me," he said. "Try to get back to 2012 form." NOTES: Three of the new members of the As pitching staff threw their first bullpen sessions of spring training on Sunday, starting pitcher Scott Kazmir and relievers Jim Johnson and Luke Gregerson. . Melvin said reliever Sean Doolittle will throw a bullpen session on Monday as he returns from a minor calf injury. .

Lost to Los Angeles in first round of playoffs.MINNEAPOLIS - Adding bird-safe glass to the Minnesota Vikings new stadium could add as much as $60 million in extra costs and delay construction by six months, the chairwoman of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said Friday.Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen gave the estimate in response to complaints that the clear glass planned for the $1 billion downtown Minneapolis stadium would pose a threat to migratory birds, Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1ysOBLI) reported.If you look at Mortenson (Construction), their subcontractors, all of our consultants and staff that are working on this project —and youre extending the whole project from two to six months — youre looking at costs that would be anywhere from $25 (million) to $60 million and potentially higher, Kelm-Helgen said.Kelm-Helgen said Viracon, the stadiums Owatonna-based glass maker, has said changing the glass order to substitute etched or fritted glass would take as much as 23 extra weeks, possibly keep the Vikings in TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota for an additional season, and divert other events. She said that could affect the rent the Vikings woulld pay to the stadium authority. Bruce Bochy Jersey. So that $10 million might conceivably not come in, Kelm-Helgen said.Kelm-Helgen repeated that stadium construction would proceed as planned. The Vikings are set to play in their new stadium with an inaugural preseason in mid-August 2016. The new stadium will host the 2018 Super Bowl.She also offered more detail on the plans to test a number of film coatings produced by Maplewood-based 3M Co. that might make the glass safer for birds. The University of Minnesota will help monitor the tests. But the authority has made no firm commitment to use the films.Bird advocates have been citing a smaller figure, about $1 million, as the added cost for fritted glass.But stadium officials say that doesnt account for potential lost revenue, such as Vikings game rent, or possible legal action by contractors seeking compensation for indirect costs of lost business due to schedule changes.Im not sure I believe that, said Lisa Venable of Minnesota Citizens for the Protection of Migratory Birds. She said shed like to see proof.___Information from: Minnesota Public Radio News, http://www.mprnews.orgCheap Football Norway JerseysCheap Nigeria Soccer JerseysCheap Morocco Soccer JerseysCheap Mexico Soccer JerseysCheap Japan Soccer JerseysCheap Italy Soccer JerseysCheap Germany Jerseys AuthenticCheap Mexico Jerseys AuthenticCheap Colombia Jerseys AuthenticCheap Belgium Jerseys AuthenticCheap Brazil Jerseys AuthenticCheap Argentina Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Germany JerseysWholesale Brazil JerseysWholesale Portugal JerseysWholesale Argentina JerseysWholesale Belgium JerseysWholesale France JerseysWholesale Spain JerseysWholesale England Jerseys ' ' '
