Former Milwaukee Brewers’ ace Ben Sheets signed a 1-year, $10-million contract with the Oakland A’s.
Sheets has been plagued by injuries and didn’t pitch at all in the majors last season, recovering from elbow surgery. He held a pitching session for several scouts in Louisiana recently.
Sheets spent his first eight major league seasons with the Brewers, going
86-83 with a 3.72 ERA.
The Brewers also came to terms on a 1-year, $950,000 contract with reliever Carlos Villanueva, avoiding arbitration.
Villanueva was 4-10 with a 5.34 ERA in 64 appearances. His deal leaves only outfielder Corey Hart without a contract.
