The Angels made another move in what has been a monumental offseason, agreeing to a four-year extension with second baseman Howie Kendrick, according to sources. The deal for Kendrick, which according to sources is pending a physical, would cover Kendrick's final year of arbitration and his first three free-agent years. Kendrick, 28, played in 140 games last season, hitting .285 and a career-high 18 home runs. He is a lifetime .292 hitter over six seasons. The Angels have been baseball's biggest player in free agency this offseason, highlighted by the signings of both Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson.
