New Angels general manager Perry Minasian is familiar with the veteran lefty after their time together with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The 38-year-old has pitched in the majors for 14 years, including stints with the Philadelphia Phillies, Houston Astros, Seattle Mariners, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees, and Blue Jays. He posted a 3.47 ERA over nine starts with the Bronx Bombers last season.
Los Angeles' pitching staff finished with the third-worst ERA (5.09) in the American League in 2020. Texas' hurlers didn't fare much better after recording a 5.02 ERA.
