Colombian Julio Tehran, Cuban Gío González and Venezuelan Martín Pérez agreed Thursday to contracts in Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Angels, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox in that order.
The Angels and the Colombian right-hander reached a one-year, $ 9 million agreement. The coffee grower will join newly acquired Dylan Bundy to bolster a rotation that includes Andrew Heaney, Griffin Canning and Patrick Sandoval, as well as Japanese pitcher / designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, who will attempt to return to the mound after a Tommy John operation.
Tehran, 28, had been with the Atlanta Braves their entire career. The right-hander made his Atlanta debut in 2011 and became a regular pitcher in the club’s rotation two years later. In 229 career games (226 starts), he is 77-73 with a 3.67 ERA.
For his part, the left-hander González would have reached an agreement with the White Sox, without confirming time and financial amount.
Last season, the 34-year-old Gonzalez was 3-2 with a 3.50 ERA for the Milwaukee Brewers in 19 games (17 starts).
For life, the Cuban is 130-99 with 3.68 ERA with the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, New York Yankees and Washington Nationals.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox signed Martín Pérez for a year and a team option for 2021.
The deal would be for $ 6 million with a team option for 2021 of $ 6.2 million.
Perez spent the 2019 season with the Minnesota Twins after pitching seven seasons for the Texas Rangers, going 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA and 135 strikeouts in 29 starts for Minnesota last season.
