The Angels have signed David Pauley to a minor league contract, reports Mike DiGiovanna of The Los Angeles Times (on Twitter). The Octagon client did not receive an invitation to Spring Training according to MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez (on Twitter).
Pauley, 28, was released by the Tigers earlier this month. He posted a 3.16 ERA with 5.4 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 74 innings across 53 relief outings for the Mariners and Tigers in 2011. Detroit acquired Pauley from Seattle in the trade that sent Doug Fister to Detroit. He is not yet arbitration eligible.
