Not satisfied after signing Carlos Pena and Brennan Boesch yesterday the Angels have added another veteran left-handed bat in Chad Tracy, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

Tracy is 33 years old and spent the past two seasons as a bench bat for the Nationals, hitting .230 with seven homers and a .660 OPS in 241 plate appearances spread over 165 games.

He was once a solid regular for the Diamondbacks, but Tracy hasn’t topped a .700 OPS since 2008. He gets a minor-league deal and will try win a bench role as a corner infield backup and pinch-hitter.
