Justin Duchscherer could go back to the A's

It was reported on Monday that Justin Duchscherer has offers from three clubs and as poised to make his decision shortly. Today Buster Olney says that he could land right back where he started with the A’s.

The Yankees had been one team inquiring about him, but now that their take-a-chance-on-a-comeback-candidate strategy has been jettisoned, Duchscherer may decide to simply go back to that with which he is familiar.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
