    Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday.

    Texas had hoped to re-sign the 2010 AL Most Valuable Player.  Speaking Thursday after a Rangers' holiday luncheon, Daniels was asked whether Hamilton had agreed with the Angels.

    Daniels said "that's accurate" and that he had just been informed by Hamilton's agent. According to a report on ESPN.com, Hamilton has agreed to a five-year, $125 million contract.

    Hamilton will join powerhouse player Albert Pujols and former teammate C.J. Wilson.
