Angels signed OF Eric Young Jr. to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Young spent the majority of the 2016 season with Triple-A Colorado Springs and batted just .263/.338/.339 across 329 plate appearances in the hitter-friendly parks of the Pacific Coast League. The 31-year-old does still have pretty good wheels, but he doesn't belong on a major league roster. Jan 24 - 5:30 PM
