The Angels on Monday avoided arbitration withAlberto Callaspo, agreeing to terms with the third basemanon a one-year, 3.15-million contract that leaves shortstop Erick Aybar as the team's only unsigned, arbitration-eligible player. However, there is no immediate urgency to resolve Aybar's 2012 contract situation because the Angels are trying to secure the slick-fielding switch-hitter to a long-term deal. With Callaspo secured, the Angels now have 17 players under contract for 140 million next season. Their final 2012 payroll is expected to be in the 150-million range. Callaspo, 28,is not the prototypical power-hitting third baseman that many Angels fans continue to clamor for, but he had a solid 2011 season, hitting .288 with a team-leading .366 on-base percentage, 23 doubles, six home runs, 54 runs and 46 runs batted in and playing solid defense. The six-year veteran, acquired in a July, 2010, trade from Kansas City, has a .281 career batting average and .337 on-base percentage. He made 2 million last season.
