The Angels are nearing a deal with free-agent lefty Grant Dayton, reports Robert Murray of FanSided. Dayton, a client of KVA Sports, opted out a minor league deal with the Marlins last weekend.

Dayton, 34, has appeared in parts of five big league seasons — two with the Dodgers and three with the Braves. He carries a 3.43 ERA with a 27.6% strikeout rate against a 9.0% walk rate in 102 1/3 innings — all in relief.
