Bob Melvin extension among A's offseason priorities

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics plan to discuss a contract extension with manager Bob Melvin this offseason as well as possible new deals with home run leader Khris Davis and All-Star second baseman Jed Lowrie.

Two days after the A's lost to the New York Yankees in a wild-card game, team officials began mapping out the framework for 2019 with hopes of capitalizing on the team's first playoff appearance in four years.

Signing Melvin, Oakland's manager since 2011, to an extension is high on the list of things to do. He's currently signed through the 2019 season.
