Angels sign catcher Jason Castro

Until a few hours ago, the Angels had 1 healthy catcher on their roster: Anthony Bemboom. With Max Stassi undergoing hip surgery in late September, the Angels were in desparate need of catching help. And let’s face it, even with a healthy Stassi they need some catching help in a bad way.

Catcher Jason Castro and the Los Angeles Angels are in agreement on a one-year, $6.85M deal, pending physical, sources tell ESPN. Castro rounds out an Angels lineup that added Anthony Rendon and should have top outfield prospect Jo Adell in the big leagues early this season.
