Tempe, AZ (Sports Network) - The Anaheim Angels have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with starting pitcher John Lackey.

The 25-year-old righthander was 10-16 in 2003 with a 4.63 earned run average and two shutouts in a team-high 33 starts. He also led the team in shutouts, complete games with two and strikeouts with 151.

Lackey, who owns a 19-20 career record with a 4.29 ERA, won Game 7 of the 2002 World Series in his rookie year. He was selected in the second round of the 1999 free agent draft.

Anaheim also agreed to a one-year deal with righthander Kevin Gregg, also 25. Gregg toiled in the minors last year before a late-season call-up.

Gregg made his big league debut against Cleveland on August 9, a quality start which resulted in a no decision. He went six innings, allowing one run on four hits with six strikeouts.

In five games with the Angels, Gregg had a 2-0 mark and a 3.28 ERA.
