OAKLAND -- The Oakland A's today announced that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Bobby Kielty on a one-year contract for the 2006 season.

Kielty batted .263 with 10 home runs and a career high-tying 57 RBIs in 116 games with Oakland last year. His batting average was the second-best mark of his five seasons in the Majors. The 29-year-old switch-hitter made a team-leading 52 starts in left field and also started 37 games in right field. Kielty is a .254 career hitter with 44 home runs and 205 RBIs in 485 career games.

Kielty was one of six arbitration-eligible players remaining on the A's roster. The remaining five are right-handed pitchers Kiko Calero and Juan Cruz, catcher Adam Melhuse, infielder Mark Ellis and outfielder Milton Bradley.
