A’s Agree to Terms with RHP Chris Resop on One-Year Contract

The Oakland A’s agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Chris Resop on a one-year contract for the 2013 season, the club announced today.

Resop was acquired from Pittsburgh for minor league right-handed pitcher Zach Thornton Nov. 30.  He was 1-4 with a save and a 3.91 ERA in 61 relief appearances with the Pirates last year.  Resop tossed a career-high 73.2 innings, which tied for seventh among National League relievers.  The 30-year-old right-hander allowed a .276 opponents batting average, including .237 against left-handed hitters.
