Fisher, whose parents founded Gap, is attempting to relocate the A’s to Las Vegas in a move heavily criticized by Oakland fans. Fisher has been unloved by the fan base for years as the team routinely ranks near the bottom in payroll.

A veteran of nine years in the majors, May spent his first six with the Minnesota Twins before two seasons with the New York Mets. The 34-year-old right-hander had 21 saves for the A’s in 2023 and went 4-4 with a 3.28 ERA in 46⅔ innings.
He finished his career on an impressive roll, going 1-0 with nine saves and 0.00 ERA in his final 15 appearances.
