Slugger Khris Davis, A’s reach agreement on one-year deal

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis, last season’s major league home run leader, reached agreement Friday with the Oakland Athletics on a $16.5 million, one-year contract to avoid salary arbitration.

The A’s also said they had agreed to one-year deals with left-hander Sean Manaea, infielders Jurickson Profar and Marcus Semien and outfielder Mark Canha to avoid arbitration.

Davis received a hefty raise from the A’s last winter, then went out and hit a majors-best 48 home runs while setting a career high with 123 RBIs — not to mention leading the low-budget club back to the playoffs for the first time since 2014 before a wild-card loss to the Yankees.
