Athletics' Matt Harvey: Signing with Oakland
Harvey was released by the Angels on July 21 and it's somewhat surprising it took this long for a team to take a flier on the veteran right-hander. The 30-year-old signed a one-year, $11 million contract with Los Angeles this offseason, but he posted an ugly 7.09 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 39:29 K:BB in 12 starts (59.2 innings). It's a low-risk move that garners some organizational depth for the A's, as Harvey is unlikely to see the majors without demonstrating tangible improvement in the minors.
