OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Right fielder Josh Reddick and new third baseman Brett Lawrie are among the players to reach agreements on one-year contracts with the Oakland Athletics and avoid arbitration.

Right-hander Ryan Cook, outfielders Sam Fuld and Craig Gentry also agreed to one-year contracts, the team said Friday. The new-look A's have made nine trades this offseason involving 27 players.

In addition, infielder Andy Parrino cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Nashville. He will be a non-roster invitee to spring training next month.

The A's have four remaining players in arbitration: pitchers Fernando Abad, newly acquired Tyler Clippard and Jarrod Parker and infielder Eric Sogard.
