ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have scheduled a news conference for Saturday to announce the signing of free-agent outfielder Josh Hamilton.

The team sent out a news release Friday saying it plans to make a major announcement Saturday at 11:30 a.m. PST at the ESPN Zone at Downtown Disney.

Hamilton agreed Thursday to a $125 million, five-year contract with the free-spending Angels, and the sides were working to finalize the deal. The 2010 AL MVP is leaving the AL West rival Texas Rangers, making him the latest high-profile star to migrate to Southern California.

Hamilton hit a career-high 43 home runs last season and batted .285 with 128 RBIs in 148 games.
