A bunch of guys with from zero to three years' experience agreed to new contracts today. The Angels renewed the contract of Australian right-hander Rich Thompson and reached agreement with Jason Bulger, Kevin Jepsen, Brian Stokes, Rafael Rodriguez, Matt Palmer and Brandon Wood.
So, how much did they get? The Angels aren't saying, but it is somewhere north of $400,000 and probably south of $500,000. In the collective bargaining agreement, inexperienced players have no leverage.
