This isn’t going to turn around the Angels’ slow start, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the club has signed right-hander Kip Wells to a minor league contract.
Wells, who turns 36 later this month, was signed after having a workout with the Angels yesterday. He owns a 4.71 ERA over 12 major league seasons, including a 4.58 ERA and 19/20 K/BB ratio in 37 1/3 innings over seven starts with the Padres last season.
The Angels will be without Jered Weaver for at least the next four weeks with a fractured left (non-throwing) elbow, so Wells will function as starting pitching depth. Garrett Richards is currently filling Weaver’s spot in the rotation.
