The Oakland Athletics are closing in on a deal for free agent reliever John Axford The Athletics have agreed to a 2-year, $10 million deal with reliever John Axford, as first reported by Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. The deal is pending a physical.
The Oakland Athletics are know for finding value, and they may have done that here.  John Axford had a 4.20 era in 55.2 innings in 2015, but that was at Coors Field.  He also had a 3.57 FIP, so that era may have been significantly inflated.  The Oakland Coliseum should be good for Axford.
