BASEBALL / DAILY REPORT : ANGELS : Magrane Agrees to Two-Year Deal

September 21, 1993|BOB NIGHTENGALE

General Manager Whitey Herzog, determining that the Angels could not afford to lose starter Joe Magrane to free agency, reached a two-year contract agreement with the left-hander late Monday night, club sources confirmed.

Magrane, according to sources, agreed to sign a two-year contract with an option that will guarantee him at least $3.5 million, and could be worth about $6.3 million if he remains healthy the first two seasons.

The Angels are scheduled to make the announcement today in a news conference.

Magrane, 29, signed with the Angels on Aug. 20 after being released by the St. Louis Cardinals. He is 3-1 with a 3.44 earned-run average since joining the Angels.

The Angels attempted to acquire Magrane from the Cardinals in a trade before the All-Star break that would have sent starter Chuck Finley to St. Louis for stopper Lee Smith, third baseman Todd Zeile and Magrane. The Cardinals rejected the offer.
