Angels among teams with interest in reliever Luis Ayala

9 Comments

From MLB.com beat writer Alden Gonzalez comes word that the Angels are “one of four clubs” showing interest in free agent reliever Luis Ayala.

All four are offering major league contracts.

Ayala posted a cool 2.09 ERA in 56 innings last season for the Yankees after signing a minor league deal in February and earning a spot in the Opening Day bullpen at spring camp. There’s enough interest this time around for him to get a guaranteed spot.

Ayala, who turned 34 years old earlier this month, owns a 3.47 career ERA in seven big league seasons.
