MLB: Angels set to introduce Josh Hamilton
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Los Angeles Angels are throwing a party Saturday, but the guest of honor's name wasn't on the invitation.

Josh Hamilton will be introduced at a 9:30 a.m. MST news conference, although an Angels news release vaguely indicated only a "major announcement," because Hamilton's deal wasn't official until after he passed his physical Friday. The club was obviously confident enough that Hamilton would pass that it released details of the news conference.

Hamilton and the Angels agreed to a five-year, $125 million deal Thursday, shocking the baseball world because the team had been presumed to be out of the market for position players.

Around the horn

Tigers • Detroit and right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez agreed to an $80 million, five-year contract. Sanchez was a part of Detroit's rotation that led the franchise to the World Series this year. The Tigers acquired the 28-year-old Venezuelan in July from Miami.

Yankees • Ichiro Suzuki and New York closed in Friday on a $13 million, two-year contract.

MLB notes • Pitcher showed mettle in postseason.
