A’s ink Ekstrom to Minor League deal

The A’s have added to their relief depth by signing right-hander Mike Ekstrom to a Minor League deal that includes an invite to big league camp, according to a source. Ekstrom, 29, has made a handful of appearances in the Majors in each of the last five seasons, spanning stints with the Padres, Rays and Rockies. He spent most of 2012 at Triple-A Colorado Springs, posting a 2.53 ERA with 57 strikeouts in 57 innings.
