AngelsThe Angels on Friday signed veteran outfielder Ryan Langerhans and long-time minor leaguers Eric Hurley, a right-handed pitcher, and Robinson Diaz, a catcher, to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.

Langerhans, 31, spent parts of the last three seasons with the Seattle Mariners, hitting .200 with a .326 on-base percentage, nine home runs and 20 runs batted in.

Hurley, 26, played six seasons in the Texas Rangers organization, compiling a 42-33 record, 4.17 earned-run average, 580 strikeouts and 233 walks in 665 innings. He has appeared in only five big league games, all starts for the Rangers in 2008, going 1-2 with a 5.47 ERA, and he sat out the entire 2009 and 2010 seasons because of shoulder injuries.
