Angels sign P Matt Harvey.

By: Dr. Spock



1 year contract for $11 million, with an extra $3 million in incentives.  Seems pricey for a struggling starter.  Angels are desperate for starting pitchers.

The Angels originally drafted Harvey in the 3rd round of the 2007 MLB Draft, but he went to college instead.  Interesting note: The Angels' 2007 draft class was historically bad.  Out of all the pitchers they selected in 2007, the Angels got ZERO wins.  From the hitters they drafted the same year, the Angels got only one home run.  Ouch.  (Per Bill Shaikin at the LA Times.)
