The Oakland Athletics, continuing their search for an adequate third baseman, signed free agent Brandon Inge on Sunday, according to a major-league source. Inge, who was released by the Detroit Tigers last week, cleared waivers at 2 p.m. ET. Inge played 12 seasons for the Tigers, breaking in initially as a catcher. A career .234 hitter, Inge was selected to the All-Star Game in 2009 as a third baseman. The Tigers' offseason signing of Prince Fielder left Inge without a position, as Miguel Cabrera moved from first base to third. Upon his release from the Tigers, Inge was batting just .100 with a home run and two RBI this year.
