LOS ANGELES- On the heels of their stunning signing of slugger Albert Pujols, the Los Angeles Angels also bolstered their pitching staff Thursday, agreeing to terms with lefty C.J. Wilson, the New York Post reported.
According to SI.com, Wilson will sign a five-year, $75 million deal to return to his native southern California.
The two signings total approximately $325 million in spending on a historic morning for the Angels at the Dallas Winter Meetings.
Last season, the 31-year-old Wilson went 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA and helped lead the Texas Rangers to their second consecutive World Series appearance. The converted closer is 31-15 over the past two seasons, his first two as a starter.
Earlier Thursday, the Angels agreed to terms with Pujols on a 10-year contract worth more than $250 million, FOX Sports reported.
