Angels signed RHP Eric Hurley to a minor league contract.

Hurley hasn't pitched in the major leagues since the 2008 season, dealing with chronic hand problems and more recently a concussion. He's just 26, though, and was a pretty nice prospect at a time, so perhaps the Angels can coax some value out of him. He'll begin the year at Triple-A.
