Rather than potentially non-tender Williams the Angels have signed him to a one-year deal worth $820,000 upfront and another $120,000 in possible incentives, avoiding arbitration with the 30-year-old right-hander.
Williams went 4-0 with a 3.68 ERA in 44 innings down the stretch for the Angels in his first MLB action since way back in 2007, but his K/BB ratio was an underwhelming 28/15 and he served up six homers. He’ll compete for the fifth-starter job in an otherwise stacked rotation.
