    Left-handed reliever Sean Burnett has reached an agreement on a multiyear contract with the Los Angeles Angels, pending a physical, a source said. Financial terms of Burnett's deal, which is pending a physical, were not immediately available. Burnett's contract is for $8 million plus a $4.5 million club option while Blanton's deal is believed to be worth $15 million, the two signings coming a week after Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto signed potential closer Ryan Madson and traded for ex-Braves starter Tommy Hanson. Those signings gave the Angels up to six capable starters, plenty of depth in the back end of the bullpen and after factoring projected arbitration salaries and minimum contracts a current payroll of roughly $140 million. The likes of Anibal Sanchez, Kyle Lohse, Ryan Dempster and Edwin Jackson part of a pitching market that has seen inordinate amounts of money distributed would seemingly be ruled out, too.
