?Mike Fiers won't have to do much unpacking this offseason as the free agent pitcher is close to inking a contract with the ?Oakland A's.
The Athletics and Fiers are nearing an agreement on a two-year contract that will keep him with the team for the 2019 and 2020 season. ?Fiers was traded to the Athletics last season from the ?Detroit Tigers.
Fiers had been ?drawing interest from multiple teams across the league, including the ?Nationals, ?Giants and ?Rangers. Ultimately he decided to stay in Oakland and return for a couple more seasons with the A's.
In 2018, Fiers logged nine starts for Oakland, posting a 5-2 record while striking out 52 batters across 53.0 innings pitched and recording a 3.74 ERA.
