The A's signed right-hander Jason Jennings and Brett Tomko to minor-league deals and Jennings reported this morning. Tomko told me he'll drive to Phoenix later this week and report right to a rehab coordinator because he is still working his way back from that nerve injury that ended his season with Oakland last year.
Tomko, of course, pitched for us last year, surprising most everybody with a 2.95 ERA in six starts. Jason Jennings is a 31-year-old RHP who most recently pitched for the Texas Rangers, with a 4.13 ERA in 44 relief appearances. Also from Slusser (via twitter):
Jennings is here [in camp]. A's will stretch him out to start or for long or middle relief.
