Lefty reliever Diekman receives two-year deal from Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Left-handed reliever Jake Diekman agreed to a $7.5 million, two-year contract to return to the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday after joining the club in a trade from Kansas City before last July’s deadline.

Diekman’s deal includes a $4 million team option for the 2022 season. Oakland, which earned the top AL wild card last season before losing at home to Tampa Bay, re-signed Diekman a day after declining to offer a contract to former closer Blake Treinen, letting the 2018 All-Star become a free agent.

After the season ended, manager Bob Melvin and general manager David Forst said the A’s might need to do even more - they won 97 games and still were 10 behind the majors-leading 107-win Houston Astros in the AL West - to guarantee themselves a long playoff series in October. Oakland lost in the wild-card game for the second straight year.
