The A’s have reached a Minor League deal with right-hander Matt Harvey, a source told MLB.com’s Martin Gallegos. Oakland has not confirmed the deal.

The 30-year-old Harvey began the 2019 season with the Angels, struggling to a 7.09 ERA across 12 starts. Harvey allowed 13 homers and an .887 OPS to opposing hitters before Los Angeles designated him for assignment and released him last month.

Oakland’s rotation has been hit hard with injuries throughout the season, with starters Marco Estrada, Daniel Gossett and Sean Manaea all on the injured list and Frankie Montas serving an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.

But the A’s already acquired starters Homer Bailey and Tanner Roark before the July 31 Trade Deadline, and are two games back of the Rays in the chase for the American League’s second Wild Card spot.
