The Oakland A’s and Bob Melvin have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension through the 2019 season, the team announced on Thursday.

Melvin’s most recent extension, which he inked in September of 2015, goes through the end of the 2018 season.

Earlier this season, Melvin picked up his 1,000th career win and his 500th with Oakland. With 535 wins entering Thursday night’s game against the Texas Rangers, Melvin is third in franchise history in that department.
