8:35pm: Sam Blum of the Athletic reports that Devenski actually will be signing a minor league deal with an invitation to big league Spring Training (on Twitter).
8:25pm: The Angels are in agreement on a one-year contract with right-hander Chris Devenski, reports Jon Morosi of MLB.com (Twitter link). The reliever finished the season with the Phillies after starting the year in Arizona.
Devenski made 13 big league appearances this past season. He opened the year with the Diamondbacks and was selected onto the MLB roster in late July. That marked a culmination of a year-long rehab from a Tommy John procedure in June 2021. The Cal State-Fullerton product made 10 appearances for the Snakes, allowing nine runs in 10 2/3 innings before being let go at the end of August.
The Phillies added Devenski on a minor league pact almost immediately thereafter, and he was selected onto the 40-man roster at the end of September. He pitched three times in a Philadelphia uniform, allowing five runs in four innings. While he was eligible for postseason play, he was left off the roster throughout Philadelphia’s pennant-winning stretch.
More to come.
