Mayers signed a one-year, $1.2 million deal with the Angels on Friday to avoid arbitration, Nolan King of USA Today reports.

The 29-year-old took a major step forward during the shortened 2020 campaign and worked in high-leverage spots for the Angels with a 2.10 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 43:9 K:BB, recording two saves and five holds. Raisel Iglesias is poised to operate as the closer, but Mayers should enter spring training as the favorite for the setup role.
