PHOENIX -- Josh Reddick took some batting practice swings Sunday at the Oakland Athletics spring training camp and, the way the ball was jumping off his bat, it was hard to tell he had a troublesome wrist last season. Alex Stalock Jersey . The injury now behind him, Reddick and the Oakland Athletics avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $2.7 million, one-year contract Sunday. The 26-year-old outfielder had asked for $3.25 million when the sides swapped figures last month and had been offered $2 million. "Its a huge weight off my shoulders," Reddick said. "We battled with negotiations but I had all the confidence in the world that we werent going to make this a nasty court affair. They made it clear that they werent going to do that. From the get-go it was very comforting for me . happy to have that out of the way now and get back to playing ball." Reddick hit .226 with 12 homers and 56 RBIs in 114 games last year, when he went to the disabled list twice because of a sprained right wrist that required off-season surgery. He made $510,000. The As had hoped for more production. Acquired from Boston before the 2012 season, Reddick had 32 homers and 85 RBIs in his first season with Oakland, when he earned a Gold Glove. "More just piece of mind for him to get that out of the way," As manager Bob Melvin said. "You dont want to start camp with that weighing on your mind. It was going to get done, just glad it got done where both sides are happy with it and now he can just move on and start playing baseball." Melvin said Reddick looks a little stronger this season after putting on some additional pounds from weightlifting. Reddick regrets not taking care of his wrist earlier, when it first started to hurt. He said he should have gone on the disabled list right after the injury instead of resting it and then continuing to play. "Im not going to try to set any expectations, Im just going to try and put last year behind me," he said. "Try to get back to 2012 form." NOTES: Three of the new members of the As pitching staff threw their first bullpen sessions of spring training on Sunday, starting pitcher Scott Kazmir and relievers Jim Johnson and Luke Gregerson. . Melvin said reliever Sean Doolittle will throw a bullpen session on Monday as he returns from a minor calf injury. . OF Coco Crisp arrived at camp today ahead of veterans reporting day, which is Wednesday. . The As will donate $63,055 to the City of Phoenix on Feb. 27 before their spring training game against Milwaukee. Proceeds from the teams charity game that will benefit Kool Kids, a program that provides free swimming at select city pools for youth ages 17 and under. The As will also present Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton with a special plaque thanking the City of Phoenix for its 33-year partnership with the club which will end after this year when the team returns to Mesa for its spring training.

The Jets won for the second time in three games after beating the visiting Colorado Avalanche in Sundays overtime battle. Bryan Little was credited with the game-winning goal in OT to help Winnipeg record a 2-1 decision at MTS Centre. Little was positioned in the low slot, where he deflected Andrew Ladds backhander. The puck trickled through Colorado goaltender Semyon Varlamov and across the goal line with 25 seconds remaining. Ladd scored on a redirection in the first period for his 100th goal with the Jets/Thrashers franchise. Ondrej Pavelec made 22 saves as Winnipeg finished its homestand with a 2-3-0 record. I liked the action we had around the net all night from all of our lines, Ladd said. Tuesdays test kicks off a four-game road trip for the Jets, who are 1-2 as the guest this season. Winnipeg forward Evander Kane practiced for the first time Monday since getting injured in the season opener. Although Kane joined the team on its trip, he is not expected to play during the swing. The Jets have lost three of four and six of their last eight games against the Isles overall, but the club has four victories over its past six trips to Long Island. The Islanders are off to a 6-2 start in the franchises final season on Long Island before moving operation to Brooklyn for the 2015-16 campaign. New York didnt win its seventh game last season until earning a victory over Nashville in its 19th tilt on Nov. 12. Jack Capuanos club won its second straight tilt on Satuurday, beating the visiting Dallas Stars by a 7-5 count. Zach Parise Jersey. Frans Nielsens third-period hat trick helped the Islanders win the wild contest at the Coliseum. With the game tied at 4-4 after two periods, Nielsen started his surge as he finished a 2-on-1 rush with a goal at the 9:39 mark. He then received a pass from Mikhail Grabovski on another 2-on-1 break and wristed the puck past Anders Lindback for a 6-4 lead 5 1/2 minutes later. Shawn Horcoff cut the deficit in half when he beat Chad Johnson only 23 seconds after Nielsens second tally, but the native of Denmark capped the night on an empty netter with one-tenth of a second left. Anders Lee, Nikolai Kulemin, Brock Nelson and Lubomir Visnovsky each added a goal for New York, while Johnson made 26 saves in the win for the Metropolitan Division leaders. You get the two points however you win ... but you cant rely on scoring (seven) goals, Johnson said. I want to be better and make some more saves. Although his team hit the net seven times against the Stars, Isles captain John Tavares was held without a point for just the second time this season. Tavares still leads the team with 11 points on three goals and eight assists. New York is 3-1 as the home team this season. After capping a brief two-game homestand tonight, the Isles will embark on a five-game road trip.
