OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Experienced closer Trevor Rosenthal reached agreement on an $11 million, one-year contract with the Oakland Athletics.
The 30-year-old Rosenthal is another new addition to a rebuilt A’s bullpen that general manager David Forst made a priority after AL West champion Oakland lost closer Liam Hendriks in free agency to the White Sox.
Rosenthal went 1-0 with a 1.90 ERA with 11 saves over 23 2/3 innings between the Royals and Padres last season.
Oakland also signed former Giants closer Sergio Romo to a one-year deal. The 37-year-old left handed reliver spent last season in Minnesota appearing in 20 innings and finishing with a 1-2 record with a 4.05 ERA and recorded five saves.
Romo won three World Series titles during his nine seasons in San Francisco.
