Walden, others reach agreement
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.
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.
