Fuentes near deal with Athletics

Relief pitcher Brian Fuentes is near a contract agreement with the Oakland Athletics that is approximately worth $10.5 million over two years.

Fuentes, a four-time All-Star, was 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 24 saves last season with the Angels and Twins.

Fuentes still must pass a physical before he signs.
