A's sign Eric O'Flaherty to two-year, $7 million contract
Left-handed relief pitcher Eric O'Flaherty has signed with the Athletics for two years and $7 million.
O'Flaherty, 28, is coming off season-ending Tommy John surgery and isn't likely to be available until around the All-Star break this coming season.
Prior to the injury, O'Flaherty was among the top left-handed relievers in baseball. In the past four seasons combined, O'Flaherty sports a 1.68 ERA (234 ERA+), 1.13 WHIP and has struck out 160 hitters in 193 innings. He rarely allows inherited runners to score, as in 2012 only one of his 22 inherited runners scored.
