2012 MLB Offseason: Oakland A's Acquire Seth Smith From Colorado Rockies

According to a tweet by FOXSports.com's Jon Morosi, the Oakland A's have acquired Seth Smith from the Colorado Rockies for right-handed pitcher Guillermo Moscoso and left-handed pitcher Josh Outman.

Smith avoided arbitration on Sunday and signed for $2.4 million before being dealt to the A's. Smith's name had surfaced throughout the offseason in trade rumors and he had been linked to deals with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Braves, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.Smith seemed to be on the outside looking in to start in the Rockies outfield. Incumbents Dexter Fowler and Carlos Gonzalez and recently-acquired Michael Cuddyer are set to start.

Smith, 29, should start right away from the A's. Smith hit .284/.347/.483 with 32 doubles, nine triples and 15 home runs in 533 plate appearances last season.
