Angels Sign Bill Hall

January 31st, 2013

Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Angels have signed Bill Hall to a minor league contract. The deal includes an invite to Spring Training.

Hall appeared in 7 games with the Orioles in 2012. He posted a whopping .500 on-base percentage over just 14 plate appearances. In 370 plate appearances for Triple-A Norfolk, Hall posted a .246/.300/.430 line. Hall could compete for a utility role with the Angels; he’s appeared at second base, third base, and all three outfield spots over the past several years.

According to one scout, Hall is “more a 4A veteran player at this point. His bat speed has slowed considerably, and [he] has lost a step all around defensively.” It’s unlikely that Hall will make the big league team, but he is a veteran presence, and it’s always good to have those types of players in the organization, especially given Hall’s experience at nearly every every position.
