Blanton, 31, was 10-13 with a 4.71 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 166 strikeouts in 191 innings pitched last season for the Phillies (21 appearances, 20 starts) and Dodgers (10 starts).
The Angels have Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Tommy Hanson sitting atop their rotation, but after that it had been in a bit in flux with Garrett Richards and Jerome Williams. Now it appears Blanton slots as the fourth starter with Richards the five. The Angels had previously been connected with Kyle Lohse and Anibal Sanchez, too.
