White Sox selected INF Angel Sanchez from the Angels with the 17th pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft.

Sanchez had a decent .320/.390/.407 slash line in 107 games this summer at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He could crack Chicago's Opening Day roster as a backup infielder.

Angels signed INF Angel Sanchez to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invite to spring training. Sanchez, 29, hit .320 in 107 games with the Astros' Triple-A affiliate last season. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010 as a member of the Red Sox.

Angel Sanchez (back) had been scheduled to make his spring debut Sunday before the game was rained out.

Angel Sanchez (back) will not make his spring debut Thursday as previously hoped.

Sanchez has been dealing with a tight back this spring after slipping and falling while taking his mother's luggage down a flight of stairs in early-February. The 28-year-old infield took took batting practice off coaches on Tuesday and tracked pitches against minor leaguers, but he's apparently not close to game-ready.

Angel Sanchez (back) fielded ground balls and took swings off a tee Wednesday.

Sanchez is being brought along slowly this spring after injuring his back while taking his mother's luggage down a flight of stairs in early-February. "It felt way better than [Tuesday], so it's improving," said Sanchez. The 28-year-old infielder is a non-roster player this spring after batting just .240/.305/.285 with one home run and 28 RBI in 110 games last season at the major league level.

Angels sent INF Angel Sanchez outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Sanchez successfully cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 28-year-old shortstop batted just .240/.305/.285 with one home run and 28 RBI in 110 games last season at the major league level. He will be in Astros' camp as a non-roster player.

Astros designated INF Angel Sanchez for assignment.

The 28-year-old shortstop batted just .240/.305/.285 with one home run and 28 RBI in 110 games last season at the major league level. With the Astros adding shortstop Jed Lowrie over the offseason, Sanchez was unlikely to see nearly as much playing time in 2012.
Tue, Jan 24, 2012 03:19:00 PM

Angel Sanchez has just four hits in his last 24 at-bats.

We could see this coming. Sanchez got off to a red-hot start, but the journeyman simply didn't have the skills to sustain it. He's also had trouble getting into the lineup since Clint Barmes returned from the DL, and he'll have even more problems once Jeff Keppinger comes back.
Thu, May 12, 2011 01:16:00 PM

Angel Sanchez went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 11-2 victory over the Cubs.

It's time to start paying attention to this formerly light-hitting infielder. In relief of the injured Clint Barmes, Sanchez is now batting .395/.438/.512 while knocking in eight runs. He definitely needs to be owned in NL-only leagues until Barmes returns.
