Dec. 19 -- All that remains for Oakland to sign the left-hander is his passing a physical, according to A's general manager Billy Beane. Beane all but announced Rhodes as the club's closer at a fan event Thursday night in Oakland. Beane said he expected the signing to occur before the weekend.
Looks like this should be done very soon.....
Isn't a left-handed closer a little unusual? Seems the White Sox could have used Marte last season if there isn't some kind of reason most closers are RH. I'm sure Billy Beane has done the research to back-up the decision to go with Rhodes. Just curious.
