The AP reports that the Los Angeles Angels have signed catcher Jason Castro to a one-year $6.85 million contract. The deal is pending a physical.

Castro, 32, hit .232/.332/.435 with 13 home runs over 275 plate appearances for the Twins in 2019. His role diminished as the season wore on due to the breakout season enjoyed by Mitch Garver, but he was far, far superior to the guys the Angels used behind the plate.

Castro would seem to be in line to be Los Angeles’ everyday starter at the moment.
