The Angels have signed 29-year old righty reliever Chad Orvella to a minor league deal. Orvella pitched in 27 games (1 start) in AA+AAA ball last season and he was 1-2 with a 4.98 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Orvella last pitched in the majors in 2007 with the Rays. He has pitched in 69 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 4-10 with 1 save, a 5.79 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP. Orvella has decent stuff so it was worth taking a flier on him.
UPDATE: (4/1/2010) The Angels have released Chad Orvella.
