Confirming a move that was reported yesterday, the A’s have officially announced a three-year contract extension with Bob Melvin, who took over as interim manager when Bob Geren was fired in early June.
Oakland has gone 42-49 (.462) under Melvin, who previously managed the Mariners and Diamondbacks to losing records. Geren had a 334-376 (.470) mark in four-plus seasons on the job.
Since firing Ken Macha following a 93-69 season in 2006 the A’s are 376-425 and have yet to finish above .500.
