|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/2/13) The Athletics opted not to let go of nine arbitration-eligible players, as they tendered contracts to them all prior to Monday's deadline. The players are: catcher John Jason, infielders Daric Barton, Brandon Moss and Jed Lowrie, outfielders Josh Reddick and Seth Smith, and pitchers Jerry Blevins, Jesse Chavez and Fernando Rodriguez.
The team has already reached a one-year contract with Rodriguez, though details have not been announced by the team. They will likely continue to negotiate with the other players prior to arbitration hearings.

(9/23/13) The Athletics' Daric Barton, who has gotten looks as the team's primary first baseman dating back to 2007, has thrived in the role since returning from the minors Aug. 26, according to the San Jose Mercury News, batting .319 (23 for 72) with two homers and an .816 OPS in 24 games.
"Daric has really matured," general manager Billy Beane said. "He had a hard time when he was younger handling things when they didn't go right. He'd get frustrated with himself. Now he's taking things and accepting that it's not always going to be perfect."
Barton, who has started 12 of the team's last 14 games, has more or less locked up a spot on the postseason roster. The 28-year-old hit .297 with seven homers and an .853 OPS in 110 games at Triple-A Sacramento.
