Justin Duchscherer is officially back in the fold with the A’s. The team just announced the right-hander has agreed to a one-year contract, known to include a base salary of about $2 million with incentives that could push his earnings to $5.5 million. Duchscherer passed his physical Tuesday, the final step to making the deal final. We’ll get him on a conference call a bit later today.
To make room for him on the 40-man roster, left-handed reliever Jay Marshall was designated for assignment.
