CJ Wilson Signs With Angels – Reports
According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, free agent pitcher CJ Wilson has joined Albert Pujols in LA with the Angels for a 5 year $75 million dollar contract.
LA seems to be the place to be. Not only did Albert Pujols sign with the Angels earlier today, but reports from NY Post baseball columnist Joel Sherman indicate that pitcher CJ Wilson has also come to terms with the team for a 5 year deal, half of Pujols', and it's worth around $75 million.
Sherman tweeted that a source close to the Angels told him that the team and Wilson have agreed on the deal. Wilson was believed to be the top pitching prospect this offseason. Texas was interested in bringing back Wilson and the marlins also tossed an offer his way as well, but now it seems that he will be an Angel.
