Fister signed a major-league contract with the Angels on Thursday, pending a physical, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Fister originally seemed to be linked more with National League clubs, but the Angels ultimately won the right-hander's services. The financial terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet. Fister most recently produced a 4.64 ERA with the Astros last season, which could help him land a rotation spot in an Angels' rotation that is decimated by injuries at the moment.
