The Angels signed starting pitcher Chris Volstad to a Minor League deal with a Spring Training invite.

Volstad, 27, was the 16th overall pick by the Marlins in 2005. The 6-foot-8 righty had a solid rookie season in ’08, but was never able to duplicate it and spent most of 2013 pitching for the Rockies’ AAA affiliate.

In 703 2/3 career innings in the Majors, Volstad has a 4.94 ERA.
