Scott Snodgress takes offer from Angels

SAN DIEGO -- Left-hander Scott Snodgress, who became a free agent when he was non-tendered by the Chicago White Sox last week, has reportedly signed with the Los Angeles Angels.

The White Sox were believed to be exploring the possibility of bringing Snodgress back to the organization, but the Southern California native took a minor-league offer from the Angels with an invite to big league camp in spring training. The Angels are the closest major league team to his hometown of Yucaipa, Calif.

Snodgress was a September call-up this past season but struggled in his brief opportunities (2 1/3 innings). He has a 3.84 ERA over four minor league seasons.

The White Sox made Snodgress their fifth-round pick in the 2011 out of Stanford.
