The Angels have agreed to terms with veteran utility player Bill Hall, 33, on a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. The right-handed-hitting Hall, who can play third base, shortstop, second base and the outfield, will compete for a reserve spot with the Angels, who watched him work out Tuesday in Phoenix. But he is also open to playing at triple-A Salt Lake, which is short on right-handed bats, General Manager Jerry Dipoto said. Hall has played with six teams over the last four years and spent most of 2012 at triple-A Norfolk, where he hit .246 in 90 games, with 15 homers and 45 runs batted in. He appeared in only seven big league games for the Baltimore Orioles. Hall spent the first eight years of his career in Milwaukee and had his best season in 2006, when he hit .270 with 35 homers, 39 doubles and 85 RBIs. His split contract with the Angels will pay him a little more than 500,000 a year if hes on the big-league roster. -Mike DiGiovanna
