Angels, Williams avoid arbitration …

The Angels and pitcher Jerome Williams have agreed on a $2 million contract for 2013, thus avoiding arbitration for the 31-year-old right-hander, a source told MLB.com on Tuesday. 

Williams, who isn’t eligible for free agency until after the 2014 season, went 6-8 with a 4.58 ERA in 32 games (15 starts) for the Angels this past season. He’s expected to be the club’s long reliever in 2013. 

The Angels’ remaining arbitration-eligible players are starters Jason Vargas and Tommy Hanson, third baseman Alberto Callaspo and reliever Kevin Jepsen, with Callaspo and Vargas both headed into their final season before free agency. 

The two sides exchange figures on Friday and arbitration hearings are scheduled from Feb. 4-20, if necessary. Teams and players can negotiate on a contract all the way up to their hearing date, however.
