OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have agreed to one-year contracts with four players in arbitration: infielders Jed Lowrie and Brandon Moss, outfielder Craig Gentry and reliever Luke Gregerson.

Lowrie's deal Friday is for $5.25 million. The switch-hitter batted .290 with 15 home runs and 75 RBIs last year.

Moss hit a team-leading 30 home runs and finished second with 87 RBIs while hitting .256. Gregerson was acquired from San Diego on Dec. 3 for slugger Seth Smith after going 6-8 with four saves and a 2.71 ERA. And the A's got Gentry from Texas in a four-player trade on Dec. 3 after he batted .280 with two home runs and 22 RBIs.

The only Oakland player remaining in arbitration is right fielder Josh Reddick.
