Led by Davis' bat, young A's look to build on strong finish

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Khris Davis' powerful bat provided so many much-needed highlights for the Athletics in another last-place season - and there were many others by young prospects whom manager Bob Melvin and the front office are counting on to carry the club into 2018.

There is major optimism in Oakland, and serious talk of signing core players to long-term contracts as the franchise builds for a new ballpark.

The A's won 17 of their final 24 games after trading away more stars so the youth movement could continue.
