Yusmeiro Petit and the Oakland Athletics have reportedly agreed to a two-year-deal.

The MLB website says that the veteran reliever will be getting $10 million per the deal, pending a physical. That’s $3.5 million in 2018 and $5.5 million in 2019.

Petit, 33, was with the Los Angeles Angels where he earned a career-best 2.76 ERA over 91 1/3 innings.

The team tweeted to welcome Petit on Thursday afternoon.
