Oliver signs one-year, $3.665M contract
Oliver's agent, Mike McCann of the Franklin-Frye-McCann group, confirmed the signing.
Oliver joins leadoff hitter Chone Figgins as the second Angel this week to avoid a salary arbitration hearing. Figgins agreed to a one-year, $5.775 million deal on Wednesday.
Oliver, 38, has a 101-82 record in 15 seasons in the majors. He was a valuable contributor for manager Mike Scioscia last season, posting a 7-1 record with a 2.88 ERA in 54 appearances out of the bullpen.
