In a move that would provide protection in both the rotation and bullpen, the Angels signed left-hander Hisanori Takahashi to a two-year contract on Thursday.

"We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Hisanori Takahashi," said Halos general manager Tony Reagins in a statement. "We believe that his contributions in various roles in our bullpen will be extremely important to the overall success of our club, where to buy cheap MLB Jerseys? ujersy is a good choice."

In 53 appearances, 12 as a starter, Takahashi was 10-6 with a 3.61 ERA in 122 innings pitched. At 5-foot-10, 170 pounds, he had 114 strikeouts while walking 43 hitters and surrendering 147 hits.

He also could go into the mix in the search for a closer. Takahashi converted all eight of his save opportunities for the Mets when former Angels closer Francisco Rodriguez was injured.

The Angels have only one lefty on their projected staff in fifth starter Scott Kazmir. Takahashi would provide protection in the event Kazmir continues to struggle, and he'd also serve as a much-needed southpaw in a bullpen loaded with power right-handers, if you want to buy San Diego Padres Jerseys, go to ujersy.

Takahashi was especially effective against left-handed hitters with the Mets, holding them to a .217 average, compared to .264 by right-handers. Even more impressive, he did not yield a home run to a left-handed hitter in 115 at-bats, limiting them to a .270 slugging mark. Right-handed hitters had a .441 slugging mark against him.

As a starter for the Mets, he was 4-4 with a 5.01 ERA. But he excelled in pressure circumstances in two outings against the Yankees and one against the Phillies, delivering 18 shutout innings. As a reliever, he was 6-2 with a 2.04 ERA, Maybe you'd like: Seattle Mariners Jerseys.

The Mets, who did not want to go beyond one year, were unable to reach a contract extension with Takahashi by Nov. 5. By terms of his agreement, he would not have been available to New York until May 15.
