Pennington is scheduled to make $1.5 million in 2016 and $2.25 million in 2017. He played last season for the Arizona Diamondbacks and was dealt in August to the Toronto Blue Jays. He finished the 2015 season batting .210 with three home runs and 21 RBIs in 105 games while making starts at five different positions.
He spent his first five seasons in the majors with the Oakland Athletics, which included a career-best eight home runs and 58 RBIs in 2011. His addition to the Angels brings the team some much-needed experience in the middle infield. Rookie Taylor Featherston struggled last season playing second base in place of Johnny Giavotella, who missed several weeks due to injury.
