OAKLAND -- The Oakland A's today announced that they have agreed to terms with free agent right-handed pitcher Scott Dunn on a one-year contract. The A's also selected right-handed pitcher Marcus McBeth from Double-A Midland and added him to the 40-man roster. Left-handed pitcher Erasmo Ramirez, infielder J.J. Furmaniak and outfielder Vince Faison agreed to terms on minor league contracts and will be non-roster invitees with the A's this spring.

Dunn began the 2006 season with Tampa Bay and was 1-0 with an 11.74 ERA in seven relief appearances before he was designated for assignment on April 27. He spent the balance of the year at Triple-A Durham where he was 4-2 with a 2.73 ERA in 38 games, including one start. The 28-year old Dunn also pitched in the Majors with Anaheim in 2004 and has a 10.97 ERA in 10 career appearances.

McBeth was originally drafted by the A's as an infielder in the 4th round of the 2001 draft but was converted to pitcher prior to the 2005 season. He led the A's farm system with 32 saves in 2006 and was a combined 3-3 with a 3.07 ERA in 59 relief appearances for Single-A Stockton, Double-A Midland and Triple-A Sacramento. The 26-year old McBeth also pitched for the Arizona Fall League champion Phoenix Desert Dogs and was 1-0 with two saves and a 4.50 ERA in 11 appearances.

Ramirez spent the entire 2006 season at Triple-A Oklahoma in the Texas organization and was 6-3 with nine saves and a 3.59 ERA in 54 relief appearances. The 30-year old left-hander spent parts of three seasons with Texas from 2003-05 and is 8-4 with a 4.01 ERA in 84 career appearances at the Major League level.

Faison hit .260 with 14 home runs and 66 RBI in 120 games for Double-A Trenton in the New York Yankees organization. The 25-year old was originally drafted by San Diego Padres in the first round of the 1999 draft and has also played in the Seattle Mariners organization.

Furmaniak played shortstop for Triple-A Indianapolis in the Pittsburgh organization and hit .213 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 114 games. The 27-year old was originally drafted by San Diego in 2000 and made his Major League debut with Pittsburgh in 2005 when he hit .192 with one RBI in 13 games.
