Blake Parker agrees to $1.8 million deal with Angels
Pitcher Blake Parker avoided arbitration by agreeing on Thursday to a $1.8 million salary for 2018, leaving the Angels with eight arbitration-eligible players.
The deadline for teams and players to exchange figures is Friday, and most of the Angels’ eligible players are likely to reach agreements by the end of the day. Even after numbers are filed, the sides can continue to negotiate until the hearing. Hearings are scheduled for February.
The Angels’ other eligible players, in order of service time, are catcher Martin Maldonado, pitchers Garrett Richards, Matt Shoemaker, Tyler Skaggs and Jose Alvarez, first baseman C.J. Cron and pitchers Cam Bedrosian and JC Ramirez.
Pitcher Andrew Heaney agreed to an $800,000 salary on Tuesday. The Angels agreed on a $1.45 million deal with pitcher Blake Wood in December, just before the deadline for tendering deals to arbitration-eligible players.
