Bryan Harvey, who set a California record last season with 46 saves, agreed yesterday to a $15.5-million, four-year deal with the Angels that makes him the highest-paid relief pitcher in baseball.

Harvey, 28, who made $1,115,000 last season, was eligible for salary arbitration.

Harvey, the Angels' career saves leader with 113, has saved 25 or more games in each of the past three seasons.
