OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) At spring training, Khris Davis expressed his desire to stay with the Oakland Athletics on a long-term contract for the next several seasons. He wants to build something special in the East Bay, while keeping up his remarkable home run pace.

Davis now has the new deal he so wanted, after patiently waiting for it to get done.

Davis' contract, announced by the team Thursday, takes him through the 2021 season. The deal adds $33.75 million for 2020 and '21, which increased Davis' guarantee to $50.25 million over three years, a person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because contract terms had not been announced.
