OAKLAND -- The A's and right-handed reliever Pat Neshek have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, the club announced Wednesday.

Neshek, one of seven players on the A's roster eligible for arbitration, became one of the most poignant stories of the postseason when his infant son died less than 24 hours after he was born on Oct. 23.

The pitcher, who had gone home to Florida for the birth of his first child, rejoined the A's in Detroit two days after the death, in time for the first game of the American League Championship Series against Detroit. He pitched in Game 1, retiring the only two batters he faced.

For the season, Neshek was 2-1 with a 1.37 ERA in 24 appearances with the A's. He was acquired from the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations on Aug. 3.

Remaining A's players eligible for arbitration are first basemen Brandon Moss and Daric Barton, outfielder Seth Smith, catcher George Kottaras, utility infielder Adam Rosales and reliever Jerry Blevins.
