Former Tigers reliever Fernando Rodney and the LA Angels have reached an agreement on a 2-year, $11 million contract.
Rodney is a type B free agent, which means that the Tigers will be receiving a supplementary draft pick.
Honestly, I believe that the Angels got a very good deal. Rodney is a solid reliever and led the league in saves last season. More and more relievers are demanding higher salaries these days. I agree with the increase, because relief pitchers are a very important part of the game and can make or a break a ball club.
