Joel Piñeiro agreed Wednesday to a $16 million, two-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels, a person familiar with the negotiations told the AP.
The Angels hope Piñeiro, who spent 2000 to 2006 with the Seattle Mariners, will help fill a hole created by the departure of John Lackey, who got a five-year, $82.5 million deal to join the Boston Red Sox.
Elsewhere, outfielder Andre Ethier has agreed to a $15.25 million, two-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. … Left-hander Doug Davis and the Brewers were close to agreement on a one-year, $5.25 million deal.
