The Angels and right-handed reliever Cam Bedrosian have avoided arbitration with a $2.8MM settlement, Robert Murray reports. That’s the same salary MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projected for Bedrosian in October.
At times, the 28-year-old Bedrosian has been a downright excellent late-game choice for the Angels since he made his major league debut in 2014. Bedrosian was at his best in 2016, a 40 1/3-innning showing in which he logged a near-spotless 1.12 ERA/2.13 FIP. He wasn’t that good in 2019, but Bedrosian did manage a solid 3.23 ERA/3.83 FIP with 9.39 K/9, 3.23 BB/9 and a 47.6 percent groundball rate over 61 1/3 innings, despite a career-low average fastball velocity of 93 mph.
Bedrosian, who has one more arbitration-eligible season left after this one, will once again be an important part of the Angels’ bullpen in 2020. The team itself has undergone major changes in the past couple months, but its bullpen looks largely the same.
