Angels Notes: Ryan Langerhans, Eric Hurley, Robinson Diaz, Mark Trumbo

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.

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.
