 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Athletics manager Bob Melvin has received a two-year contract extension through the 2016 season after leading Oakland to a surprising AL West title last year.
The A's announced Monday that Melvin, the reigning AL Manager of the Year, received a new deal. Oakland became the first team in major league history to win a division or pennant after trailing by five games with less than 10 to play, sweeping three games against Texas to win the division over the Rangers.
Oakland lost to Detroit in the best-of-five AL division series. The A's ended a five-year stretch without a winning record or playoff berth.
Melvin took over from the fired Bob Geren in June 2011. Melvin led the Diamondbacks to the NL West title in 2007 and also won 93 games in his rookie season with Seattle in 2003.
