Neshek avoids arbitration with one-year deal
OAKLAND -- The A's have agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Pat Neshek on a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.

Neshek's deal is worth $975,000, and he can earn an additional $25,000 for 45 games pitched, 55 games pitched and 65 games pitched, MLB.com has learned.

The 32-year-old Neshek was acquired from the Orioles on Aug. 3 for cash considerations and was tremendous for the A's down the stretch, going 2-1 with a 1.37 ERA and .147 opponents' average in 24 appearances.
