The Angels continue to revamp their bullpen as they have now signed left hander Sean Burnett to a two-year $8mm deal, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports. The deal also includes an option for a third year.
Burnett will pair up with Scott Downs and form a very solid lefty duo for the Angels bullpen. The Angels also have right handers Ryan Madson and Ernesto Frieri in the back end bullpen as well.
Burnett just finished up a two-year deal with the Nationals where he earned $3.7mm. Last season Burnett went 1-2 with a 2.38 ERA with a career best 9.1 k/9 in 56 2/3 innings.
In his career, Burnett is 15-23 record with a 3.58 ERA in six seasons with Pittsburgh and Washington.
