Tyler Anderson signs with Angels for three years, $40 million
The hot pan begins to simmer.
Tyler Anderson, a starting pitcher with the Dodgers last season, has signed with the Angels, the Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed. The the deal is for three years and $40 million.
Anderson, who turns 33 in December, went 15-5 with a 2.57 ERA in 2022. He had 138 strikeouts in 178.2 innings with a 1.002 WHIP.
It was a dramatic turnaround from his career numbers, which improved to a 44-43 record with a 4.16 ERA and 1.245 WHIP. Anderson also made his first All-Star team this year.
Prior to joining the Dodgers, Anderson kicked off four seasons with the Rockies, one year with the Giants and split the 2021 season between the Pirates and Mariners.
Angels are at an interesting crossroads. They signed dynamo Shohei Ohtani for one more season and vowed not to trade him in the offseason.
The Angels went 73-89 last season and finished 33 games behind the first-place Astros in the AL West. The team fired Joe Maddon mid-season. Maddon has been replaced by Phil Nevin, who will return as Angels skipper in 2023.
