However, Romo and Casilla signed elsewhere because they had...

Or were the A’s handful of moves this winter enough to create some intrigue when the team’s pitchers and catchers report to camp in Mesa, Ariz., on Tuesday? Oakland brought back three former members of the team: outfielder Rajai Davis, reliever Santiago Casilla and infielder Adam Rosales, and also added free-agent third baseman Trevor Plouffe and Matt Joyce.
