MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez reports that the Angels are “one of four clubs” with interest in free agent reliever Luis Ayala.
Each club is offering a major league deal after Ayala was forced to settle for a minor league contract last offseason. The 34-year-old right-hander came out of nowhere last season to post a 2.09 ERA and 39/20 K/BB ratio over 56 innings. Ayala has a 3.47 career ERA in seven major league seasons. The Orioles and Padres were also known to have interest previously.
