The Angels have signed 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Greg Smith to a minor league deal. Smith pitched in 23 games (20 starts) in AAA+Independent ball last year and he was 8-5 with a 3.88 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2010 with the Rockies. He has now pitched in 40 games (all starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 8-18 with a 4.51 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Smith might get a shot to compete for the #5 spot in the Angels’ rotation this spring, but he’s going to be a longshot.
