According to Victor Rojas, the voice of the Los Angeles Angels, the club has taken a flyer on outfielder Ryan Langerhans, right-handed pitcher Eric Hurley and catcher Robinson Diaz, signing them all to minor-league contracts.
The most notable of the three, Ryan Langerhans, comes over to the Angels after spending three seasons with the Seattle Mariners. The 30-year-old hit a poor .200/.326/.350 in 318 plate appearances as a Mariner over the three-years. The veteran will now be looking to contribute to his fifth organization at the major-league level.

"If the Mariners don't respond by signing Reggie Willits we'll know they're not trying."
In other Angels news, FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi speculates possible trade between the Cleveland Indians and Angels involving first baseman Mark Trumbo. The Angels have a logjam at first and in the outfield, meanwhile the Indians are looking for a cheap option at first.
- Twitter / @jonmorosi - Mark Trumbo, for example, is exactly what the #Indians need. He makes close to the minimum. He bats right-handed. He hits home runs. #Angels
- Twitter / @jonmorosi - #Indians have bullpen arms. #Angels need bullpen arms. Let's do the deal right now, shall we? #Trumbo
- Twitter / @MLBastian - Trumbo's OBP & K rate leave something to be desired, but that 30-100 potential would look nice in middle of lefty heavy order.
