OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — The Oakland Athletics have agreed to a $3.35 million, one-year contract with left-hander Dallas Braden.

The team announced the move Tuesday.

Braden made three starts last season before being sidelined by a shoulder injury. He was 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA before going on the disabled list April 18. He had surgery to a repair a torn capsule in his left shoulder May 17.

The 28-year-old Braden is 26-36 with a 4.16 ERA in 94 career appearances during five seasons with Oakland. He pitched a perfect game against Tampa Bay on May 9, 2010.

Braden can make an additional $400,000 in performance bonuses: $75,000 each for 15, 20, 25 and 30 starts, and $100,000 for 32 starts.

The A’s have five players who remain eligible for arbitration: pitchers Andrew Bailey, Joey Devine, Gio Gonzalez and Brandon McCarthy; and outfielder Ryan Sweeney.
