A’s Reach 2-Year Agreement With Closer Brian Fuentes
According to several sources the Oakland A’s are close to finalizing a two-year deal with left-handed reliever Brian Fuentes, a source familiar with negotiations confirmed Sunday.
Fuentes, 35, is coming off a fine season that produced a 2.81 ERA and 24 games saves. He joins what I believe could be one of the top bullpens in the league this season.
A four-time All-Star who led the AL with 48 saves in 2009, there were some rumors that the Mets had interest in Fuentes this offseason, but given his salary demands those reports were not taken very seriously.
The A’s could announce the Fuentes deal as soon as he passes his physical.
