Free agent right-hander Ben Sheets has signed with the A's, CBSSports.com has learned.

Sheets agreed to terms on a one-year deal for $10 million, plus incentives. He passed a physical today, and the deal is expected to be announced this afternoon.

Sheets, who started the All-Star Game in 2008, didn't pitch at all in 2009 after undergoing elbow surgery. He made a complete recovery, and was very impressive when he threw for teams last week in Louisiana.

The Cubs, Mets, Rangers and Mariners were also pursuing Sheets, but it's believed that the A's came in with the strongest offer. Sheets joins a young rotation that also includes Brett Anderson, one of the most impressive rookie pitchers in the American League last year.

The 31-year-old Sheets was 86-83 in eight seasons with the Brewers, including a 25-14 record in his final two years. He has dealt with injuries through much of his career, and has started 30 games only once since 2004.

I agree with you.  As long as he holds up physically, this works great for Oakland.   He helps keep them from being awful for half a season and then nets some good prospects.   Beane at his best.

Great move with no real downside for the A's. Prediction...Ben Sheets will start 30 + times for some team this year. Maybe 20 of them for the A's and another dozen or so for another team? We'll see.
