ANAHEIM (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels and reliever Scott Downs have agreed to a $15 million, three-year deal.

Downs, one of the top middle relievers on the free-agent market, went 5-5 with a 2.64 ERA in 67 games for the Toronto Blue Jays last season.

The 34-year-old left-hander is 27-28 with 16 saves in 379 games over nine major league seasons.

Angels general manager Tony Reagins says Downs “adds tremendous depth to our bullpen.”

The Angels also added Hisanori Takahashi to their bullpen this month, agreeing to an $8 million, two-year deal with the Japanese lefty.

Los Angeles announced the agreement with Downs on Friday.
