The Angels Monday agreed to terms on a 2011 contract with infielder Alberto Callaspo, thus avoiding arbitration. Today's announcement was made by General Manager Tony Reagins.

Callaspo, 27, was acquired from Kansas City on July 22, 2010 in exchange for RHP Will Smith and RHP Sean O'Sullivan. The third baseman played at every level in the Angels' minor league system from 2001 to 2005 and returned to play in 58 games with the Halos in 2010, finishing the season batting .265 (149/562) with 27 doubles, 10 home runs and 56 RBI.

Callaspo is the first Angel to agree to terms and avoid arbitration, leaving the Angels with seven remaining arbitration-eligible players (Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick, Jeff Mathis, Kendry Morales, Mike Napoli, Jered Weaver & Reggie Willits).

The Maracay, Venezuela native was originally signed by the Angels in 2001 as a non-drafted free agent. He owns a .278 career batting average with 85 doubles, 14 triples, 21 home runs and 158 RBI in 454 games. Callaspo resides in Maracay, Venezuela with his wife, Marianny and child.
