Escobar agrees to extension with Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Starting pitcher Kelvim Escobar agreed to a three-year extension Wednesday with the Los Angeles Angels, putting him under contract through the 2009 season.

Escobar, a 30-year-old right-hander, is 5-5 with a 3.96 ERA in 10 starts this season.

"I'm excited about the prospect of him pitching for the Angels through the 2009 season."

Terms of the deal were not immediately available. Escobar's agent, Peter Greenberg, had not returned a phone call.

The pitcher signed a three-year, $18.75 million contract with the Angels on Nov. 24, 2003, after pitching five full seasons and parts of two others with the Toronto Blue Jays. He was 11-12 with a 3.93 ERA in 33 starts in 2004, and 3-2 with a 3.02 ERA in seven starts and nine relief appearances last season.

"I wanted to stay here. I love it here," Escobar said. "The organization, the ballpark, the fans and my teammates -- everything is great."

Rotation set for next year.
