More Angels: Halo's bullpen savior?

Hall signed a minor league free agent contract that included an invitation to major league spring training with the Angels in January. Prior to his release, the 33-year-old was competing for a reserve role with the club.

Hall was limited this spring by a calf injury. He appeared in four exhibition contests for the Halos, collecting three hits -- all doubles -- over nine plate appearances.

After being a regular with the Milwaukee Brewers from 2004-09, Hall has appeared in the majors with six teams in the past three years. He spent the 2012 season with the Baltimore Orioles, collecting two hits -- one home run -- and five walks over 14 plate appearances. He spent a majority of the season with Baltimore's Triple-A club, hitting .246/.300/.430 with 18 doubles and 15 home runs over 370 plate appearances.

Over 11 seasons in the majors, Hall owns a career batting line of .248/.308/.436. He's manned second base, third base and shortstop as well as all three outfield positions during his time in the bigs.
