NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a $15 million, two-year contract with right-hander Joe Blanton.
Blanton's deal includes a team option for 2015, the person said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical.
The Angels also agreed with reliever Sean Burnett on an $8 million, two-year deal, pending a physical. The 30-year-old left-hander was 1-2 with a 2.38 ERA in 70 games this year for the Washington Nationals. He joins a bullpen that already has added Ryan Madson to go along with incumbent closer Ernesto Frieri.
Madson is coming back from Tommy John surgery. If healthy, he could supplant Frieri as the team's closer.
