The Los Angeles Angels have signed right-hander Mark Lowe to a minor league contract.

The Los Angeles Angels have signed right-hander Mark Lowe to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to major league spring training, according to Mike DiGiovanna of The Los Angeles Times.

Lowe signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he was recently released. Prior to being cut loose, he maintained an ERA of 4.15 with three walks and six strikeouts over nine appearances this spring.

Lowe has spent the past three seasons with the Texas Rangers. Last year, the 29-year-old posted a 3.43 ERA over 39 1/3 innings with a strikeout-to-walk ratio (SO/BB) of 2.15. He was limited to 36 appearances in 2012 due to a side strain.

Over seven seasons in the majors, Lowe owns a career ERA of 3.94 with 2.03 SO/BB.

The Angels' current projected bullpen consists of Ernesto Frieri, Sean Burnett, Kevin Jepsen, Scott Downs and Jerome Williams. Several others -- including Garrett Richards and David Carpenter -- are fighting for the final spots in LA's 'pen, and Lowe figures to join this mix of arms.
