Alberto Callaspo and the Angels were said to be “close” to a two-year deal three weeks ago and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the two sides finally made it official today.

Callaspo will get $8.975 million to buy out his final season of arbitration eligibility and first year of free agency.

He made $3.15 million last season while hitting .252 with 10 homers and a .692 OPS in 138 games, but has hit .287 with a .743 OPS during the previous three seasons and is slated to be the Angels’ starting third baseman this year.
