The Angels have signed outfielder Scott Schebler to a minor-league deal, bringing in a player who hit 30 homers for the Cincinnati Reds in 2017, a source confirmed Saturday.
Schebler, 30, has otherwise bounced around throughout parts of six years in the majors, with the Dodgers, Reds and Atlanta Braves. He had just one big league at-bat in 2020, with the Braves. Schebler has a career .239/.318/.442 slash line, for a .760 OPS.
A left-handed hitter, Schebler could become a candidate to provide some outfield depth and balance. Mike Trout, Justin Upton, Jo Adell and Taylor Ward are all right-handed hitters. The only left-handed hitter who saw significant time in the Angels outfield last season was Brian Goodwin, who was traded to the Reds.
