Joakim Soria has agreed to a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Oakland Athletics, according to multiple reports.
Soria was 3-1 with a 4.09 ERA last season after being acquired in July by the Milwaukee Brewers from the Chicago White Sox. Prior to the trade, Soria had posted a 2.56 ERA with 16 saves for the White Sox.
The Athletics lost closer Jeurys Familia in free agency when he returned to the New York Mets on a three-year contract.
The 34-year-old has twice needed Tommy John surgery and also pitched for the Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers, Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates.
He has 220 career saves and was a two-time All-Star in four seasons with the Royals.
