MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Left-hander Brett Anderson is back with the Oakland Athletics for a third stint 10 years after breaking into the big leagues with the club.
He received a $1.5 million, one-year contract, announced Wednesday at spring training. He can earn an additional $1 million in performance bonuses for starts: $200,000 each for 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24.
Anderson went 4-5 with a 4.48 ERA in 17 starts and 80 1/3 innings last season for the A's.
The 31-year-old spent the 2009-13 seasons with Oakland before being traded to the Rockies in December 2013.
Also Wednesday, the A's placed left-hander Sean Manaea on the 60-day injured list to clear roster room for Anderson.
Manaea pitched a no-hitter against Boston on April 21 in a bright start to a season that ended with the ace undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery in September. He is expected to be out until around the All-Star break.
