Athletics avoided arbitration with LHP Jerry Blevins by agreeing to a one-year contract.
The financial terms aren't available. Blevins, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, has posted a 2.97 ERA over the last three seasons for the A's. He'll be used as a lefty specialist again in 2013.

Jerry Blevins was mighty impressive, pitching out of a major jam to preserve a one-run victory over the Angels on Tuesday.
The A's entered the ninth with a 6-3 lead, but Grant Balfour allowed a pair of runs to score and left runners at first and third with nobody out. Blevins inherited the dicey situation, and immediately got Kendrys Morales to strike out on four pitches. He then got Howie Kendrick to hit into a game-ending double play ground out. While he's unlikely to take over the reigns of the closer's job anytime soon, he gets to be the hero for at least one evening.

Athletics recall LHP Jerry Blevins from Triple-A Sacramento.
Blevins, 27, has a 3.80 ERA and 20/14 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings with the A's this season. He has bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors several times already, but should stick with the big club for the rest of the year.

Athletics designated LHP Jerry Blevins for assignment.
It's the third time this season he's been designated, as a 3.93 ERA but 1.69 WHIP simply haven't been good enough for him to retain his roster spot. He cleared waivers and remained in the organization the first two times, so it stands to reason he'll be able to do so again.
