Free-agent reliever Yusmeiro Petit has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Oakland Athletics, his agent told The Athletic on Thursday.

Petit, 33, a 10-year veteran whose ability to gobble up innings was coveted, pitched 91 1/3 innings in 60 appearances for the Los Angeles Angels last season while posting a 101/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio and a 2.76 ERA.

Petit had a base salary of $2.25 million last season. He has also pitched for the Nationals, Giants, Diamondbacks and Marlins over his career.
