Lackey Declines Arbitration

In an unsurprising move, John Lackey declined the Angels' offer of arbitration, according to Lyle Spencer of MLB.com. The offer was more of a formality anyway, as the former Halo ace and top starting pitcher on the market is expected to seek a deal in excess of the five-year, $82.5MM deal signed by A.J. Burnett last season.

The Angels will net a couple of high draft picks if they fail to retain Lackey and he signs with another club.
