Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto didn’t anticipate much of a hassle in signing the team’s draft picks, in part because of the new collective bargaining agreement and in part because he took so many college players. So far, it seems to be going smoothly.

The Angels announced Monday they have agreed to terms with 11 of their picks. After signing Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, they surrendered their first- and second-round picks.

The team has already wrapped up negotiations with four of its first five picks, including its first selection, Florida Atlantic reliever R.J. Alvarez, a third-round pick.
