Steve Frey, the left-handed relief pitcher who led the Angels with 13 saves last season, reached an agreement Wednesday with the San Francisco Giants on a two-year contract worth $1.85 million. The Angels had offered $1.7 million. "We tried, we tried our best to work out something with the Angels," Frey said, "but nothing ever happened. I wanted to go to the Angels all along, but they just never budged. It's a shame, but they really left me no choice."

The Angels rejected reliever Steve Frey's revised contract proposal Friday, a move that probably will end his Angel career. Steve Comte, Frey's agent, said they submitted a modified contract proposal at the Angels' request, laden with incentives, but the Angels never budged from their original offer. The Angels, it is believed, offered a two-year contract worth about $1.5 million to avoid arbitration the next two years.

Steve Frey says there are good points and bad points to his long acquaintance with Angel Manager Buck Rodgers. The biggest benefit for Frey was that when the Angels needed a left-handed short reliever, Rodgers remembered him from their days in Montreal and recommended the Angels purchase his contract from the Expos. The drawback is that Rodgers knows his foibles and won't let him get away with anything.

Seeking the largest salary award in Angel history, outfielder Luis Polonia will file today for arbitration, his agent said Thursday. Polonia is expected to submit a salary request in excess of $2.5 million, eclipsing the $2.1 million former Angel first baseman Wally Joyner received in 1991. "We feel Luis is one of the top leadoff hitters in the game," said agent Chuck Berry, "and he should be paid accordingly.

The New York Mets broke up their 1986 World Series champions a little more Friday when they dealt shortstop Rafael Santana to the New York Yankees, a few hours after trading away relief pitcher Jesse Orosco. The deal that sent Santana to the Yankees was the first between the two intracity rivals to involve a major league player. Four minor league players were also included in the deal. Santana, 29, batted .255 last season, hitting 5 home runs and driving in 44 runs.

It is hardly the elixir to all of their bullpen woes, but the Angels acquired what they believe will be invaluable experience Thursday when they signed left-hander Craig Lefferts to a one-year contract. Lefferts was guaranteed $400,000 in 1994 and can earn $900,000 in incentives if he appears in 68 games or pitches 90 innings. Lefferts, 36, the Texas Rangers' opening-day starter last season, becomes the Angels' first free-agent signee of the winter.
