The Angels made their first significant move since the end of the 99-day lockout on Thursday, agreeing to terms with veteran reliever Archie Bradley on a one-year, $3.75-million contract, according to a person familiar with the move who was not authorized to speak publicly about it and requested anonymity.
The deal, which is pending Bradley passing a physical exam, will add a veteran right-hander to the back of a bullpen that is anchored by closer Raisel Iglesias and veteran left-hander Aaron Loup.
Bradley, 29, has a career 30-28 record, 3.89 ERA and 30 saves in seven big-league seasons, the first six with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder was traded to the Cincinnati Reds in August 2020 before signing a one-year, $6-million deal with Philadelphia in 2021.
