The Angels have signed 33-year old lefty swinging OF/1B Brad Hawpe to a minor league deal. He played in 35 games in AA-ball for the Rangers last year and he was 32 for 123 (.260 avg, .764 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 3 homers and 12 RBIs. He last played in the majors back in 2011 with the Padres. Hawpe has now played in 893 games in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 801 of 2,907 (.276 avg, .848 OPS) with 398 runs scored, 124 homers, 490 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Hawpe could get a shot later this year with the Angels if he is hitting well in the minors and the need arises at the major league level for him.
