The Los Angeles Angels will make their split with longtime outfielder Garret Anderson official Monday by declining to offer him arbitration, CBSSports.com has learned. The Angels will offer arbitration to their four other eligible players, including the two high-profile free agents whom they continue to chase: First baseman Mark Teixeira and closer Francisco Rodriguez.
The Angels also will offer arbitration to two pitchers, starter Jon Garland and swingman Darren Oliver.
Teixeira, Rodriguez and Oliver all are Type A free agents, meaning that the Angels will receive two compensatory draft picks if any of those players sign elsewhere. Garland and Anderson are Type B free agents, meaning that the Angels will receive one.
