Michael Wuertz, A’s agree to two-year, $5.25 million deal w/club option (Wuertz quotes added)

Wuertz’s take on his first multi-year contract: “I’m relieved to have a little bit of security here. It’s just a big thing for my family and I. We really enjoyed Oakland last year and I’m ready to be part of something special, with some of the new guys we brought in. (Just) continuing on with what we did in the bullpen last year and what we did in the second half.”

A source confirmed for me that Wuertz gets $2.2 million in 2010 and $2.8 million in 2011.

The A’s just announced they’ve come to terms with reliever Michael Wuertz on a two-year contract w/a club option for 2012. The AP has the total value at $5.25 million. He was the last remaining Athletic headed for arbitration, so the A’s can check that off their to-do list …
