TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Los Angeles Angels renewed the contract of closer Jordan Walden and reached agreements on one-year deals with 21 other young players.

Peter Bourjos, Hank Conger, Kevin Jepsen, Michael Kohn, Brad Mills, Garrett Richards, Rich Thompson, Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo and Bobby Wilson were among the players who reached agreement.

When a team renews a player’s contract, it typically signals a dispute over salary. The Angels didn’t release terms of the contracts, but each of them figures to be for around the major-league minimum, $480,000.

Walden reached the All-Star game in his rookie season last year, but also blew 10 saves, tied for the major-league lead.
