Garland Signs 1-year contract with Arizona


It's a 1-year deal with an option for 2010. Guaranteed money is believed to be in the $6 million to $8 million range. The Angels were very lucky that Garland didn't accept arbitration. They would have been stuck paying him at least $10 million. Bad timing for Garland. Last year Carlos Silva, a pitcher statistically similar and somewhat worse than Garland, received a 4-year $48 million deal from the Mariners.
