Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that he's yet to decide who will be his closer this season.

The A's officially signed Santiago Casilla on Friday, and he'll be in the mix for save along with Ryan Madson, Sean Doolittle and perhaps others. Madson led the club with 30 saves last season and might have the initial leg up for the role going into the season, but he would figure to have a short leash in that instance. The A's have a deep bullpen, but it might be a headache-inducing one for fantasy owners as they try to figure out who will get the most chances in the ninth inning.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Marlins are interested in adding a right-handed hitting first baseman and have discussed Chris Carter and Mark Reynolds, among others.

The Marlins have Justin Bour to start at first base against right-handers, but they'd like to add a bat to platoon with him. It seems likely that Carter will be seeking a full-time job following a 41-homer season, although his market has been very quiet to this point. Reynolds had a nice season in Colorado in 2016 (.282/.356/.450) but would surely be more receptive to a platoon role.

Athletics signed OF Alejandro De Aza to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

De Aza hit only .205/.297/.321 last season with the Mets and will turn 33 just after Opening Day, but he's been plenty useful in a part-time role before. He should have a pretty decent chance to win a bench job with Oakland.

Athletics designated OF Brett Eibner for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Santiago Casilla. Eibner hit only .193/.266/.353 in 208 plate appearances last season for the A's and Royals and turned 28 last month. He could clear waivers.

Athletics signed RHP Santiago Casilla to a two-year, $11 million contract.

The deal, which also includes a possible $3 million more in incentives, was reported earlier this month and is now official. Casilla lost his closer job last season with the Giants but actually had a nice year overall with a 3.57 ERA and a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 58 innings. He should work in a setup role initially but could potentially find his way into some saves.
