There's a new Angel in the outfield. Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels says Josh Hamilton has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels.
Texas had hoped to re-sign the 2010 AL Most Valuable Player.
The deal with the Angels is reported to be a five-year, $125 million contract.
The 31-year-old Hamilton won the American League Most Valuable Player Award in 2010 and has long been considered one of baseball's best all-around players, hitting .313 while averaging 33 homers and 107 RBIs the last three seasons.
With the Angels, Hamilton's left-handed bat seemingly fits perfectly behind Albert Pujols in the cleanup spot. A lot is still on the table, but the likely scenario seems to have Hamilton starting in left field, Mike Trout staying in center and MarkTrumbo in right.
