Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics agreed to terms with first baseman Ike Davis and right-handed pitcher Fernando Rodriguez on one- year contract on Tuesday.

Davis was acquired by Oakland on Nov. 23 from Pittsburgh in an exchange of international bonus slots, with the Pirates gaining the No. 27 slot and the A's landing slot No. 86.

The 27-year-old hit just .233 with 11 homers and 51 RBI in 143 games split between the Pirates and Mets in 2014. Over five major league seasons, Davis owns a .240 average with 78 homers and 270 RBI.

Rodriguez went 1-0 with a 1.00 earned run average in seven relief appearances over two stints with the A's last season after missing the previous campaign due to Tommy John surgery.

Oakland also announced that it did not tender contracts to first baseman Kyle Blanks and outfielder Andrew Brown. Both players were designated for assignment in late November.
