MLB free agents: Angels sign Mitch Stetter to minor-league contract

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Mitch Stetter was signed to a minor-league deal by the Los Angeles Angels to bolster the bullpen.

The Los Angeles Angels officially lost infielder Maicer Izturis to the Toronto Blue Jays this week, but then added a new member to the organization in left-handed reliever Mitch Stetter with a minor-league deal, according to Mike DiGiovanna.

Stetter, who come over from the Milwaukee Brewers, is a large man at 6-foot-4 and 212 pounds. He's seen action in the majors before, playing in Milwaukee at different times between 2007 and 2011. His best years came in 2007 and 08', when Stetter had 3.20 and 3.60 ERA's respectively.

In 2012, Stetter spent the year in Double and Triple-A, compiling a 1-1 record and 2.67 ERA.

The 31-year-old will have a chance in all likelihood to compete for a major league spot with LaTroy Hawkins and Jason Isringhausen becoming free agents this year. On top of that, the Angels bullpen was spotty last year, costing the team many wins down the stretch and keeping them out of the playoffs.
