The A’s have re-signed 32-year old righty starting pitcher Justin Duchscherer to a 1-year, $2 million dollar deal with another possible $3.5 million bucks in incentives. Duchscherer did not pitch last season due to injury and depression. In 2008 with the A’s, Duchscherer pitched in 22 games (all starts) in which he was 10-8 with a 2.54 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He has now pitched in 219 games (27 starts) in his major league career and he is 31-24 with 14 saves, a 3.14 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. This was a good signing for the A’s as Duchscherer will give them a veteran to lead the kiddie corps in the starting rotation if he can just stay healthy.
