A’s sign outfielder Matt Joyce to two-year deal

The Oakland Athletics added another corner outfielder to play opposite pleasant surprise power hitter Khris Davis, the team announced Wednesday.

The club signed Matt Joyce to a two-year, $11 million contract. Joyce played 140 games last year for the Pittsburgh Pirates, when he slashed .242/.403/.463 with 13 home runs over 140 games.

Joyce has been a fourth outfielder for most of his career as he owns a .185/.265/.310 line against left-handed pitchers. But he does draw walks at a high rate, finishing in the top five in the National League last year.
