Angels Agree To Deal With Free-agent Reliever

BY Robert j. matthews

The Angels and free-agent reliever Adam Cimber have agreed on a one-year contract worth $1.65M, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Fabian Ardaya from The Athletic said the two parties were talking a lot.

It's a flyer about the veteran right-handed player. Cimber had a 7.40 ERA in 20 2/3 innings, which was his worst performance ever. 

He was a submariner and had been successful despite having a fastball velocity in the mid-80s. 

Cimber had a good ERA of less than 3.00 and pitched over 70 innings in both 2021 and 2022 before this year's difficulties.

Cimber is really good at controlling the ball and making it stay on the ground. 

The grounders have decreased in recent seasons, causing a big increase in home runs this year. Injuries might have been a factor. 

Cimber was on the injured list for the last three months of the season due to a shoulder impingement.

Los Angeles has added more pitchers to their bullpen at the beginning of the offseason. 

The Halos hired Adam Kolarek for $900K and made a deal with Luis García for $4.25M.
