The Angels and Anaheim have agreed to a one-year stadium lease extension while the two sides negotiate a longer-term deal and stadium improvements.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- The Angels will keep playing in Angel Stadium - at least, through the 2020 season.

The team opted out of its lease last fall, raising the possibility the Angels could play somewhere other than Anaheim.

The city council approved a one-year extension on the stadium lease.

Two council members objected, saying the city was giving up leverage.

The city and team are expected to start talks soon on a new deal that would keep the Angels in Anaheim in a new or renovated stadium.
