Aaron Slegers was worth 0.5 Baseball Reference WAR last season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen. He had an ERA+ of 123 and an ERA of 3.46 in 11 games in 2020. Still only 27, he does not have much experience, pitching in only 20 games in his 4 partial MLB seasons.
Thus, he is pre arbitration as of now, and such the Angels can pay him the minimum. For such an inexperienced player he did pitch in the playoffs in 2020, shutting out Houston in 3 and 2/3 innings.
