Billy Beane, who two years ago reinvented an Oakland A's club that has posted 190 wins and back-to-back AL West Division titles over the past two seasons, has been named Baseball America's 2013 Major League Baseball Executive of the Year.
The Oakland A's agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Fernando Rodriguez on a one-year contract for the 2014 season, the club announced today. Rodriguez was one of nine arbitration eligible players on the A's roster. All the remaining unsigned players on the A's roster have been tendered contracts for the 2014 season.
