The Angels have made a notable addition to their starting staff, announcing agreement on three-year contract with free-agent lefty Tyler Anderson. It’s a $39MM guarantee with $13MM salaries paid out annually.
Anderson, 33 in December, turned in a career-best season with the Dodgers in 2022, pitching to a 2.57 ERA in a career-high 178 2/3 innings. Along the way, he punched out 19.5% of his opponents against a 4.8% walk rate and 40.1% ground-ball rate.
Anderson spoke with reporters about his decision to sign with the Angels saying that the conversation with the Dodgers involved a potential multi-year deal. But says that he didn't want to divulge too much in the negotiations.
Dodgers will likely look in the free agent market or trade market to get another starting pitcher for next season.
