Joel Sherman is reporting that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have agreed to a deal with free agent pitcher C.J. Wilson. The contract is said to be a five-year deal.
Wilson will leave the Rangers after seven successful seasons, in which he went 43-35 and struck out 637 batters. He also compiled a 3.60 ERA in that time period. In 2011, Wilson went 16-7, but struggled in the postseason even as the Rangers went on their second consecutive trip to the World Series.
The Angels also made an impact signing earlier in the day as Albert Pujols inked a 10-year deal with the club.
The lefty will return home to the Los Angeles area with the signing, as he hails from nearby Newport Beach, Calif. He was drafted in 2005 by the Rangers after attending Loyola Marymount University.
