ANAHEIM (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have avoided arbitration with Tommy Hanson and Jason Vargas, agreeing to one-year deals with both newly acquired starting pitchers.

The Angels announced the deals Friday for the right-handed Hanson and the left-handed Vargas, who are expected to be key members of their rotation this season.

Los Angeles acquired Hanson from Atlanta on Nov. 30 in a deal for reliever Jordan Walden. The Angels then picked up Vargas in a deal with Seattle for Kendrys Morales on Dec. 19.

The trades overhauled the Angels’ rotation after the departures of Dan Haren and Ervin Santana. Los Angeles also added right-hander Joe Blanton to their rotation behind Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson.

Reliever Kevin Jepsen and third baseman Alberto Callaspo are the Angels’ only remaining arbitration-eligible players.
