Angels, Matt Moore agree to 1-year deal reportedly worth $7.5M
The Los Angeles Angels and left-handed reliever Matt Moore agreed to a one-year contract, the club announced Thursday.
The pact will pay Moore $7.5 million for the 2023 season, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post.
Moore, one of the last capable relievers available on the free-agent market, emerged as a trusted option for the Texas Rangers last season. The 33-year-old posted a 1.95 ERA with 10.09 K/9 and held opponents to a .564 OPS across 74 innings pitched.
The veteran hurler is the Angels' latest addition as they bolster their roster ahead of the 2023 season. The club also acquired reliever Carlos Estevez, starting pitcher Tyler Anderson, infielders Gio Urshela and Brandon Drury, and outfielder Hunter Renfroe this offseason.
Moore began his career as a starter with the Tampa Bay Rays and made stops with the Detroit Tigers, San Francisco Giants, and Philadelphia Phillies. He owns a lifetime 61-62 record with a 4.45 ERA, 4.33 FIP, and 8.23 K/9 over 268 appearances.
