All-Star pitcher Tyler Anderson is facing a Tuesday deadline to accept a $19.65 million qualified offer from the Los Angeles Dodgers. Now Anderson has simply chosen not to accept the offer, but the veteran has opted to sign a multi-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels in the state.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan Notes that it was a multi-year contract for the 2022 All-Star. It was a move that solidified what was once a disaster. Angels began to rotate behind Shohei Ohtani.
Anderson, 32, saw himself as nothing more than a professional during his stints with the Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants, Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners before joining the Dodgers this past season. That changed big time when he topped one of the best swings in baseball.
