LA AngelsAlden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels have signed right-hander Chris Volstad to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Volstad is a former top prospect and first-round pick who once looked like a promising young pitcher, making a very impressive debut for the Marlins as a 21-year-old in 2008, but he has a 5.22 ERA in 619 innings since then and spent most of the past two seasons at Triple-A not doing particularly well.

He’s still just 27 years old, but the Angels will obviously be in bad shape if he secures an Opening Day job next spring.
