Angels sign OF Ryan LaMarre, drop INF Gregorio Petit

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels have signed outfielder Ryan LaMarre and designated infielder Gregorio Petit for assignment.

The moves were announced Monday night.

The 28-year-old LaMarre has 26 games of major league experience with the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox, who signed him last December and used him in five games. He has appeared in 646 minor league games over his first seven pro seasons, batting .267.

Petit batted .245 with two homers and 17 RBIs in 89 games this year for the Angels, his fourth big league team. He served as the Angels' utility infielder and took over at second base late in the season, but was unlikely to return to Los Angeles because he is out of minor league options.
