Notes: Josh Hamilton to Angels for $125m

Josh Hamilton is heading to the Angels, lured with a $125 million, five-year contract that steps up the migration of high-profile stars to Southern California.

The Angels persuaded the free agent outfielder to leave the Rangers with their third big-money offseason signing in as many years. Hamilton heads to Anaheim after first baseman Albert Pujols came West for $240 million last December along with pitcher C.J. Wilson — Hamilton’s Texas teammate — for $77.5 million. Still, the Angels failed to make the playoffs for the third straight year.
