The Oakland Athletics agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal with veteran pitcher Mike Fiers, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal and Alex Coffey.
Fiers, who spent the last two-and-a-half seasons in Oakland, finished 6-3 with a 4.58 ERA and a 4.94 FIP in 11 appearances in 2020, per FanGraphs.
The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reported the A's were the only MLB team to table a firm offer and questioned whether other franchises were retaliating against Fiers.
The 35-year-old told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich in November 2019 how the Houston Astros stole signs electronically during the 2017 season. For many, the scandal tainted Houston's World Series triumph.
