Teheran, who was the first Braves pitcher to make six straight opening day starts, became a free agent after Atlanta declined his $12 million club option for 2020.

Teheran, 28, will join Dylan Bundy as new additions to the Angels' pitching staff this off-season. Teheran, Bundy, Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani and Griffin Canning are currently expected to be the five starters in the opening day rotation.

The Angels posted the second-highest ERA in the majors last season (5.64), leading to the team prioritizing pitching in the off-season.

The right-handed Teheran, who was a member of the Braves' rotation since 2013, has a 77-73 career record and has been selected to two All-Star teams. He has a 3.67 ERA, 1,184 strikeouts and three shutouts in 229 games (226 starts).
