Carlos Pena, Brennan Boesch signed
Pena and Boesch have been invited to spring training with the Angels, getting the chance to earn a backup job on the major league roster.
Pena, an All-Star in 2009, is hoping to make the roster of his ninth major league team as a backup to Albert Pujols.
Boesch is a Los Angeles native who spent his first three big league seasons with Detroit. He joined the Yankees last year, batting .275 with three homers in 23 games.
