The Los Angeles Angels have reportedly agreed to sign Josh Hamilton to a deal worth around $125 Million over five years. The Angels had a disapointing season last year, and are not gun shy about spreading some cash around. This all comes from a source with direct knowledge of the deal told ESPN Dallas talk show host Ben Rogers. The Angels have a power filled line-up to say the least, featuring Hamilton, Pujols, and Trout. Look out A.L..
According to ESPN:
Hamilton, 31, has batted .304 in his big-league career, all but 90 games of it in Texas. He has provided big power in the middle of the Rangers’ lineup, helping the team to World Series appearances in 2010 and ’11.
Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBIs in an inconsistent 2012 season that didn’t finish well; a vision problem caused him to miss five games, he struggled offensively and he had an error in the AL West-deciding loss to Oakland.
