DALLAS (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels have turned their own double play, adding free agent pitcher C.J. Wilson to a roster suddenly boosted by the acquisition of Albert Pujols.

New Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto announced the deals at baseball's winter meetings Thursday. Both are subject to the All-Stars passing physicals.

Dipoto did not disclose the terms of the contracts.

Wilson agreed to a 5-year contract worth about $75 million, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. Pujols and the Angels agreed at $254 million for 10 years, another person told the AP. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the contracts were not completed.
