Utility man Bill Hall has rejoined the Angels organization, according to his Twitter page. The Halos had released Hall last month, avoiding paying him a $100K retention bonus. He battled some nagging injuries during Spring Training.
Hall notes that he'll be heading to extended spring training. The 33-year-old appeared briefly with the Orioles last year, spending most of the season hitting .246/.300/.430 at Triple-A while playing mostly second and third base. Hall's 35 home runs in 2006 are the most in baseball history for someone who played at least three games each at shortstop, third base, center field, and second base. Previously, Felix Mantilla hit 30 bombs in 1964 while playing each of those positions.
