Josh Hamilton LF/CF.. LAA Dec 13 '12
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have signed Josh Hamilton to a five-year contract.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the deal is worth a total of $125 million. The Halos weren't even mentioned as a potential suitor for Hamilton until a couple of hours ago, though that shouldn't surprise anyone given how last year's Albert Pujols negotiations went down. Anaheim has now landed the top position player on the free agent market two offseasons in a row. Hamilton, who turns 32 years old in May, slugged 43 home runs and tallied 128 RBI in 2012 for the division-rival Rangers.
