Sheets made 20 starts for the A’s while maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 4.53 and 1.391. His SO/9 (6.3) was down from his career norms while his BB/9 (3.2) was up.

Prior to signing his deal with the A’s, Sheets had spent his entire professional career with the Milwaukee Brewers. After being taken 10th overall in the 1999 MLB Draft, Sheets made his major league debut with the Brewers in 2001. Over his eight seasons with Milwaukee, Sheets held an ERA and WHIP of 3.72 and 1.201 with 7.6 SO/9 and 2.0 BB/9.
