OC Register: Angels reportedly agree to deal with reliever Robert Stephenson

Recommended Posts

The Angels have reportedly agreed to terms with relief pitcher Robert Stephenson on a three-year deal, adding another name to their bullpen depth chart.

Terms of the deal, which reportedly includes an option, were not available.

The Angels previously signed right-handers Luis Garcia and Adam Cimber and left-hander Adam Kolarek to major league deals this winter, although Kolarek is now on the Triple-A roster after being removed from the 40-man roster.

Stephenson, whose deal is reportedly pending a physical, posted a 3.10 ERA last season, splitting the year between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tampa Bay Rays. He was traded to the Rays in early June, and had a 2.35 ERA over 38⅓ innings with Tampa Bay, including 60 strikeouts.

Stephenson averaged 96.8 mph with his fastball last season.

A first-round pick of the Cincinnati Reds in 2011, Stephenson, 30, has pitched parts of eight years in the majors with the Reds, Colorado Rockies, Pirates and Rays. He has a career 4.64 ERA. Last season was his third out of the last five with an ERA below 4.00.
