ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — First baseman Carlos Pena and outfielder Brennan Boesch have signed minor league deals with the Los Angeles Angels.

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.

Pena began last season with the Houston Astros before spending five games with the Kansas City Royals. He has 285 career homers and three 100 RBI seasons, enjoying his best seasons with Tampa Bay.

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.
