Oakland Athletics bolster bullpen, reach agreements with Yusmeiro Petit, Sergio Romo

Veteran reliever Yusmeiro Petit has agreed to a $2.55 million, one-year contract to stay with the Oakland Athletics, pending a physical, his agent said.

The deal could pay the right-handed Petit up to $3 million based on incentives for games pitched, agent Rafael Godoy said Sunday night.

“He’s excited to return. It was his first choice all along,’’ Godoy told the AP via text message. “The team had been in contact all winter.’‘

Also Sunday, Oakland was closing in on a $2.25 million, one-year deal with veteran righty reliever Sergio Romo, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Romo also still must pass a physical.

Okay this is some good news.
Can't believe it's almost time for pitchers and catchers to report. Has been such a... full off-season.
