Los Angeles Angels Sign 3 Players, Including Former Top Prospect

The Los Angeles Angels have made significant moves to strengthen their roster depth ahead of the season.

In a bid to bolster their bullpen, they've secured the services of veteran right-hander Bryan Shaw on a minor league deal.

Shaw's extensive Major League experience, spanning nearly 800 appearances, adds a seasoned arm to their pitching corps.

With the potential for a prorated salary of $1.1MM upon joining the major league club, Shaw's arrival aims to address the Angels' bullpen challenges, particularly amidst injuries to key relievers like Robert Stephenson.

Additionally, the Angels have diversified their infield options with the signings of Elliot Soto and former top prospect Cole Tucker.

Soto's defensive versatility across multiple infield positions offers valuable depth, especially amid concerns over the team's infield stability due to injuries and inconsistent performances.

Meanwhile, Tucker's arrival injects youthful energy and potential into the lineup.

Once heralded as one of baseball's most promising talents, Tucker brings dynamic skills and athleticism, with the potential to be an solid asset for the Angels as they aim for success in the upcoming season.
