The Orange County Register is reporting that the Angels have re-signed outfielder Bobby Abreu to a two-year contract with a team option for 2012.

Abreu, 35, signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Angels on the eve of spring training this year. He hit .293 with 96 runs scored, 103 RBI and 30 stolen bases.

“I am very happy to sign this contract,” Abreu said in the team’s press release. “I really enjoyed my first season with the club. The Angels are a solid organization, with an outstanding team and great fans. With the talent we have, I look forward to the opportunity of post-season competition once again.”

Both parities were a fit for each other last year and Abreu proved that he can still be highly productive. He wanted a multi-year deal and he got one, so kudos to the Angels for not undermining his value and getting into a drawn out contract dance.
