ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)
Cantu also got an invitation to spring training in the deal announced Friday with the Angels, who also signed outfielder Doug Deeds to a minor league deal.
Cantu batted .194 with three homers and 16 RBIs in 57 games last season while playing first base and third base for the San Diego Padres, who waived him June 21. He has driven in 95 runs three times during an eight-year career with five major league teams. He had 16 homers and 100 RBIs for the Florida Marlins in 2009.
Deeds has never appeared in the majors, spending last season with the Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock.
