The Angels have avoided arbitration with Kole Calhoun, Matt Shoemaker, Garrett Richards and Danny Espinosa, according to Jon Heyman.

Calhoun, who has been an essential part of the Angels for the past few years, reached a deal for $6.35 million for the season. It is his second go around in arbitration. The Angels have two more years of control over him, as he is a Super Two player.

Matt Shoemaker, who is in his first go around of arbitration, settled for $3.325 million. The Angels will control him for two more seasons before he enters free agency.

Richards agreed to a $6.85 million deal in his second year being arbitration eligible. He will be a free agent at the end of the 2018 season.

Espinosa reached a deal for $5.425 million for the season. It is his third and final year of arbitration. He will be a free agent after the season.

Maldonado came over in the Jett Bandy trade and will make $1.725 million. The Angels will have another year of control over him.

The Angels have avoided arbitration with all players for the sixth straight season. The last time the Angels entered an arbitration hear was in 2011 for Jered Weaver.
