The A’s have signed Jason Pridie to a minor league deal, tweets Adam Rubin.

Jason Pridie, who was removed from the Mets’ 40-man roster last week, has signed as a free agent with the Oakland Athletics on a minor league deal, according to his agents from Sosnick Cobbe sports.

Pridie, 28, appeared in 101 games for the Mets in 2011. He joined the club in April after Angel Pagan experienced his injury, and never left.

Pridie hit .231 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 208 at bats over 101 games this past season.

The Mets also removed Nick Evans and Taylor Buchholz from the roster in recent days.
