Vlad an Angel

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero agreed to a deal with the Anaheim Angels, contingent on the free-agent outfielder passing a physical.

“Guerrero’s coming into [Los Angeles] and will be undergoing a physical,” Angels general manager Bill Stoneman said Sunday.

The team did not release terms of the deal, but reports in New York and L.A. on Saturday said Guerrero was set to sign a $70 million US, five-year contract. He rejected a three-year contract offer from the New York Mets on Saturday.

Guerrero, who turns 28 next month, missed 39 games last season because of a herniated disc in his back, though he managed to hit .330 with 25 home runs and 79 RBIs for Montreal. The Expos, owned by the other 29 major league clubs, let him go in December, declining to offer salary arbitration.

The Angels went 77-85 and missed the playoffs last season after winning the World Series in 2002. The team has had a busy off-season, signing free-agent pitchers Bartolo Colon and Kelvim Escobar along with outfielder Jose Guillen.
