OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – A person with knowledge of the negotiations says third baseman Brandon Inge has agreed to sign with the Oakland Athletics.

The deal is pending a physical and final paperwork, the person said Sunday, speaking on condition of anonymity because nothing had been finalized and the A’s were yet to make a formal announcement.

Inge was released by the Tigers on Thursday after batting .100 (2 for 20) with one home run and two RBIs this season.

He fills a huge void at third, where the A’s lost projected starter Scott Sizemore to a season-ending knee injury the first day of spring training.

Oakland manager Bob Melvin has tried Josh Donaldson, Eric Sogard and Luke Hughes in the spot so far.
