Angels signed INF Luis Valbuena to a two-year, $15 million contract with an $8.5 million mutual option for 2019.
The deal was agreed to last week and then finalized Tuesday after Valbuena passed his pre-signing physical. He will make $6.5 million in 2017 and $8 million in 2018 with a $500,000 buyout on his mutual option for 2019. Valbuena could open as the Angels' starting first baseman this season with Albert Pujols recovering from offseason foot surgery. Valbuena also figures to see time at third base and DH in Anaheim. He posted a career-high .816 OPS with 13 homers and 40 RBI over 90 games last year with Houston. Jan 24 - 4:22 PM
