Angel is entering his 13th season of professional baseball and will be making his Atlantic League debut with the Bluefish in 2011. The former Major Leaguer spent last year with Triple-A Fresno of the San Francisco Giants organization. He played 26 games, recording a .205 batting average. The 33-year-old has enjoyed nine seasons in the big leagues, with his first appearance coming in 2001 as a member of the Kansas City Royals. He made a big splash during his first full season in the Majors in 2003, batting .287 with 17 home runs, 28 doubles, 73 RBI, 91 runs scored, and 21 stolen bases to take home the AL Rookie of the Year award. He would spend the following four seasons in a Royals uniform before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Juan Rivera in 2008. The next year would be his final stop in the Major Leagues, making appearances with both the New York Mets and New York Yankees. In 746 career Major League games, the infielder has recorded a .258 batting average with 46 home runs, 254 RBI, 329 runs scored and 50 stolen bases over the course of 2,575 at-bats. Angel was originally signed by the Oakland Athletics and an undrafted free agent in 1997.
