Kevin Cameron is picked up by the Oakland A's

OaklandClubhouse.com

The Oakland A’s have agreed to terms with three minor league free agents: right-handed pitcher Kevin Cameron, first baseman Tagg Bozied and outfielder Matt Carson. All three will be non-roster invitees to the A’s major league spring training camp.

Is anybody going to miss KCam?  If I'm going to be okay with Peavy and Hoffman not being Padres anymore than losing KCam isn't bothering me at all.

Here's how Corey Brock described him in the most recent mailbag:

What's the status on reliever Kevin Cameron? He had a great rookie year and would really help our troubled bullpen in 2009.
-- Danny L., St. Louis

The 2008 season was certainly a lost one for Cameron, who, as you stated, was good in his rookie season. Cameron got off to a bad start in Spring Training, suffering injuries to his thumb and hamstring and even a nasty bout with the flu. He only threw 30 innings between San Diego and the Minor Leagues after suffering a sprain of his right ulnar collateral ligament. But Cameron should be fine for Spring Training and ready to compete for a spot in a bullpen that could look a lot different in 2009 than it did in 2008.
