Orioles signed OF Chris Pettit to a minor league contract.

It doesn't include a spring training invite, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN. Pettit spent last season in the minors between the Rockies and Mariners. The 28-year-old outfielder has seven plate appearances in the majors, all with the Angels. He'll likely serve as organizational depth.

Rockies signed OF Chris Pettit to a minor league contract.

Pettit owns a decent .280/.365/.451 career batting line in the minor leagues. The 27-year-old outfielder seems doubtful to climb his way to Colorado this season, but he comes with little risk for the down-and-out Rockies.

Mariners signed OF Chris Pettit to a minor league contract.

Pettit failed to earn a spot with the Dodgers in spring training as a non-roster invitee and was released. He really struggled in the minors for the Angels last season after coming back from shoulder surgery, batting just .182/.279/.308 over 532 plate appearances.

Dodgers signed OF Chris Pettit to a minor league contract.

It's not clear if the deal includes a spring training invite. Petit, a 27-year-old outfielder, was released by the Angels earlier this month after batting just .182 with a .587 OPS in 124 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He had seven plate appearances with the Angels back in 2009, but is likely to serve as organizational depth.

Angels released OF Chris Pettit.

He was outrighted off the 40-man roster earlier this offseason and is now out of the organization. The 27-year-old outfielder batted just .182 with a .587 OPS in 124 minor league games this past season, so he's probably not going to have many teams beating down his door to sign him.

Angels sent OF Chris Pettit outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Pettit is now off the Angels' 40-man roster. The 27-year-old outfielder batted just .182 with a .587 OPS in 124 minor league games this season. He has only seven major league plate appearances in his career.

Angels optioned OF Chris Pettit to Triple-A Salt Lake.

He was cleared to make room for Reggie Willits on the active roster. Pettit pinch-ran in his lone appearance with the Angels last Friday.

Angels transferred OF Chris Pettit from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Petit, 25, is expected to miss the entire 2010 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder in March.

Angels outfield prospect Chris Pettit underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Pettit is likely to miss all of the 2010 season. He's had the shoulder problem for over three months and was hoping to avoid surgery, but he recently became frustrated with the lack of significant progress. "It was a tough decision obviously but it’s just not responding especially when I throw," Pettit said Tuesday. "Throwing has been a real struggle."

Angels purchased the contract of OF Chris Pettit from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Pettit hit an impressive 348/.455/.435 in 46 at-bats this spring, but the Halos couldn't find a fit for him on the Opening Day roster. He'll serve as a backup outfielder and late-innings pinch-runner.
Wed, Sep 9, 2009 08:51:00 AM

Chris Pettit went 5-for-6 with three doubles in a doubleheader for Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

Pettit hit .348/.455/.435 in 46 at-bats this spring and is at .375/.410/.571 after 16 games in Triple-A. It's doubtful that he'll ever be a regular for the Angels, but he could prove to be pretty useful against lefties if he gets the chances. He's 12-for-22 versus southpaws in Triple-A.

Angels reassigned 2B Ryan Mount, RHP Sean O'Sullivan, RHP Jordan Walden, INF Adam Pavkovich, C Hank Conger, C Ben Johnson, OF Peter Bourjos, OF Bradley Coon, OF Chris Pettit, SS Andrew Romine and SS Hainley Statia to minor league camp.

No difficult cuts for the Angels yet, though Pettit did impress with a .348/.455/.435 line in 46 at-bats this spring. He may come in handy against left-handed pitchers later this season. Walden allowed two runs in six innings in his first spring with the major league club.

Chris Pettit had a third straight three-hit game and homered Monday for Scottsdale of the AFL.

His other two hits were doubles. Pettit has 17 hits, including six doubles, in his last six starts, giving him a .377/.438/.575 line in the AFL. He had a disappointing introduction to Double-A last season after posting a 949 OPS for two A-ball teams in 2007, but he could redeeming himself now. While he's a long shot to ever secure a role on the Angels, he has a chance to be a useful spare part in the majors.

Chris Pettit began a rehab assignment with the Rookie AZL Angels on Sunday and went 1-for-4 with a walk.

Pettit suffered a broken foot after playing in just one game for Double-A Arkansas in April. The 23-year-old hit .327/.411/.538 with 18 homers and 30 steals for two A-ball teams last year. He's not particularly toolsy, but he projects as a useful major leaguer, maybe in a reserve role.
