Angels Sign Rudy Seanez

MONDAY, 11:08am: Ken Davidoff of Newsday wrote on Saturday that the Angels signed Seanez to a minor league deal.

THURSDAY, 3:18pm: According to Bill Shakin of the L.A. Times, Angels manager Mike Scioscia confirmed his club's interest in Seanez this afternoon, but admitted that a deal might not be finalized for a few weeks.  

"Rudy's arm looks great," said Scioscia, just before adding that the 40-year-old is "going to need some time…  It's not like you're going to see him here in a week or two."  Look for him in early June.

7:41am: According to Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times, the Angels are close to signing journeyman reliever Rudy Seanez to a minor league deal.  Seanez, 40, posted a 3.53 ERA in 43.3 innings for the Phillies last year despite walking 5.2 per nine innings.  The Angels' bullpen needs all the help it can get.
