OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland A's today announced that they have agreed to terms with free agent catcher Matt LeCroy on a minor league contract. LeCroy will be a non-roster invitee to spring training. The A's also announced that non-roster invitee catcher Jeremy Brown announced his retirement.

LeCroy spent most of the 2007 season at Triple-A Rochester in the Minnesota Twins organization where he batted .194 with three home runs and 25 RBI in 80 games. He was promoted to Minnesota in September and went 3 for 20 (.150) in seven games with the Twins. The 32-year old made his Major League debut with Minnesota in 2001 and played for the Twins until signing with Washington as a free agent prior to the 2006 season. LeCroy has a .260 career batting average with 60 home runs and 218 RBI in 476 games over seven seasons in the Majors.

Brown was a non-roster invitee with the A's this spring after batting .276 with 14 home runs and 58 RBI with Triple-A Sacramento last year. He made his ML debut with the A's in 2006 and went 3 for 10 (.300) in five games.
