ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Omar Vizquel has been hired by the Los Angeles Angels as a roving infield instructor.
The 45-year-old Vizquel played for Toronto as a reserve infielder last season, finishing up his 24-year major league career with 2,877 hits. The three-time All-Star won 11 Gold Gloves.
Vizquel is interested in eventually becoming a manager. He'll work with the Angels' major leaguers and prospects during spring training.
Vizquel and Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto played together with the 1994 Cleveland Indians, and Vizquel is a friend of Angels minor league hitting coordinator Paul Sorrento.
The Angels also signed infielder Bill Hall to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training. Hall has played for six teams in 11 seasons, appearing in seven games with Baltimore last year.
