Angels, Rodney said to have deal
Tigers' former righty closer headed to Halos' bullpen

By Lyle Spencer / MLB.com

12/23/09 4:30 PM EST

The Angels have come to terms with free-agent reliever Fernando Rodney on a two-year deal reportedly worth $11 million, according to ESPNDeportes.com.

Rodney, Detroit's closer the past two seasons and a Tigers reliever for seven years, will add depth to the back of the Angels' bullpen in support of closer Brian Fuentes and setup men Scot Shields, Kevin Jepsen and Jason Bulger.

Rodney, a right-hander who has hit triple-digits on the radar gun, gives manager Mike Scioscia a second closing option along with Fuentes, who led the Majors last season with 48 saves.

Rodney converted 37 saves in 38 tries in 2009 and was 2-5 with a 4.40 ERA in 73 appearances. Working 75 2/3 innings, he had 61 strikeouts and surrendered 41 walks.

Rodney, who will be 33 when the season opens, has produced 314 career strikeouts compared to 170 walks while yielding 300 hits in 330 innings across seven seasons. His career ERA is 4.28.

A Type B free agent, he does not cost the Angels a Draft pick. The Tigers will receive a supplemental pick in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.

Rodney earned $2.7 million in 2009. Fuentes draws $9 million in 2010, the second year of his free-agent deal signed last winter. Fuentes has a $9 million vesting option for 2011 if he finishes 55 games next season.
