      Angels' Cliff Pennington: Inks two-year deal with Halos

      Pennington signed a two-year contract with the Angels on Tuesday. The veteran switch-hitter posted a .579 OPS in 105 games between Toronto and Arizona last season, his worst mark in seven major league seasons. However, Pennington's signing fills a utility need for the Angels, allowing Taylor Featherston to return to Triple-A to play everyday.

      Blue Jays SS Cliff Pennington blasts three-run homer

      Blue Jays shortstop Cliff Pennington went 2 for 4 with a three-run homer against the Braves on Thursday. He's now homered twice in his last five games, with seven RBI in that span -- about as hot a streak as you'll see from the generally light-hitting Pennington. Don't count on it to persist, but then again, there might be something in the water in Toronto right now.

      Blue Jays SS Cliff Pennington slams two hits in Tuesday defeat

      Blue Jays replacement shortstop Cliff Pennington did his best Troy Tulowitzki impression at the plate Tuesday, going 2 for 3 with a walk and RBI in a loss to Atlanta. With Tulowitzki out of the lineup for the next few weeks, the onus will be on Pennington to help pick up the slack. Tuesday was his first multi-hit game since joining the Blue Jays, which isn't altogether surprising considering he arrived at the park with four hits while on the Blue Jays. Over the past four games, he's 4 for 13 with two walks, showing that he's taking steps in the right direction.
