CLIFF PENNINGTON RUMORS

2016 Angels Preview: Cliff Pennington

For as horrific as the bench (and left field) was for the Angels last season, they still finished only one game behind Houston for a playoff berth.

Featherston is a nice defensive player but he’s only slightly better than a...

Angels end free-agent drought, sign Cliff Pennington

The Los Angeles Angels did something Tuesday afternoon they haven’t done since November 27, 2013: They signed an MLB free agent to a multi-year contract.

Infielder Cliff Pennington Pitches, Is Lone Highlight For Blue Jays (Video)

Maybe the Toronto Blue Jays should have given Cliff Pennington the start Tuesday in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. The Blue Jays infielder was the lone Toronto “highlight” of the Kansas City Royals’ 14-2 win.

D-backs value Pennington's versatility, late-game heroics

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks shortstop Cliff Pennington somehow found his way to the plate so many times in late-game situations last season it became a running joke with teammates.
