Angels Sign Nataneal Rodriguez

The Angels have signed left-hander Nataneal Rodriguez to an $180K contract, according to the Dominican Prospect League.  Rodriguez is "a power pitcher whose fastball works between 92-94 MPH and has topped out at 96 MPH," according to the DPL's release.  Rodriguez is projected as a closer, but "could turn into a quality starting pitcher in the future" with more confidence in his changeup.

Rodriguez, 20, is described as having "a small frame," but was pursued by five other clubs besides the Halos.
