From MLB.com beat reporter Alden Gonzalez comes word that the Angels have avoided salary arbitration with right-hander Jerome Williams by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Williams earned an $820,000 salary in 2012 as a first-year arbitration-eligible player while posting a 4.58 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 98/35 K/BB ratio across 137 2/3 innings. The 31-year-old right-hander owns a 4.29 career ERA, a 1.34 career WHIP and a 5.7 career K/9 through his first seven MLB seasons.

Williams will be eligible for arbitration for the final time in 2014 before hitting the free agent market heading into the 2015 campaign.
