Angels re-sign Jerome Williams, avoid arbitration

  •  

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Right-hander Jerome Williams has avoided arbitration with the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, agreeing to a one-year deal.

The veteran went 6-8 with a 4.58 ERA for the Angels last season, making 15 starts and spending long stretches in the bullpen.

Williams likely will start the season as a long reliever for Los Angeles this spring, with Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and new arrivals Tommy Hanson, Joe Blanton and Jason Vargas in the Angels' rotation.

Williams revitalized his career with the Angels in 2011 after four years out of the majors, earning a job as a starter for last season. An illness coinciding with a stretch of poor pitching knocked him out of the No. 5 rotation spot midway through the season, but he returned with strong relief performances.
