OAKLAND -- The Oakland A's agreed to terms with outfielder/designated hitter Jack Cust on a one-year contract, the club announced on Wednesday. Cust was one of two players on the A's 40-man roster eligible for arbitration, along with right-handed pitcher Justin Duchscherer.

Cust led the A's in home runs (33), RBIs (77), walks (111), strikeouts (197), on-base percentage (.375) and slugging percentage (.476) for the second consecutive season in 2008 and also topped the club in runs (77) and total bases (229). He led the American League in both walks and strikeouts and tied for sixth in home runs. The 30-year old left-handed slugger set an Athletics and AL record for strikeouts and his walk total tied for the ninth highest single season total in Oakland history. Cust now has a .242 batting average, 59 home runs, 159 RBI, 216 walks and 361 strikeouts in 272 games in his two seasons with the A's.
