UPDATE: Done deal. Two years and “between $5 and $6 million.”

Let go by the Mets last month when the two sides couldn’t agree to a new contract before a sign-or-cut deadline, left-hander Hisanori Takahashi is “close to agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Angels,” writes David Waldstein of the New York Times.

According to various reports at the time the Mets were offering only a one-year deal, while Takahashi was holding out for a multi-year offer that he apparently found with the Angels.

Takahashi started and relieved for the Mets as a 35-year-old rookie, but Waldstein indicates that the Angels are likely to use him in the bullpen. He went 10-6 with a 3.61 ERA in 122 innings overall, including 6-2 with a 2.04 ERA, .206 opponents’ batting average, and 60/22 K/BB ratio in 57 innings as a reliever.
