Angels' Minton Accepts $850,000 Deal

Greg Minton, who had filed for free agency after the Angels declined to go to arbitration with him, agreed to a one-year contract with the club Wednesday.

Minton's contract includes a base salary of $850,000, with incentive clauses worth as much as $100,000.

Minton, 38, was 4-3 with eight saves and a 2.20 earned-run average in 62 relief appearances last season. He had filed for arbitration at $1,150,000 and the Angels had offered $780,000. He earned $630,000 in salary last season and $100,000 in bonuses.

The right-handed pitcher joined the Angels as a free agent in June, 1987. He set a club record last season by pitching 105 2/3 innings without allowing a home run, a streak he started in 1988.
