Fiers finished out 2018 in Oakland after starting the season with the Tigers.
He appeared in just 10 games with the A’s, but proved to be a reliable acquisition after he posted a 3.74 ERA and struck out 52 batters in 53 innings of work. He tallied a 5-2 record in Oakland
Oakland also secured veteran reliever Joakim Soria and was part of a three-team trade with the Rangers and Rays that included the addition of infielder Jurickson Profar this offseason.
