Rockies acquire veteran INF Ellis from Athletics
Ellis was the longest-tenured member of the A’s following the departure of six-time Gold Glove third baseman Eric Chavez.
Now, all those familiar old faces on the roster from the past decade are gone. So many others departed before Ellis did: Jason Giambi, Miguel Tejada, Johnny Damon, and the Big Three pitching sensation of Barry Zito, Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder.
Ellis was reunited with Giambi on the Rockies.
“Obviously, it’s kind of mixed emotions on this given what Mark has meant to the franchise over the years, not just on the field but off the field,” Oakland general manager Billy Beane said. “He’s probably been as good a representative that we’ve had since I’ve been here.
“It’s with mixed emotions, but at end of the day I think this is a great situation for Mark.”
