Even with everyone healthy, the Angels would be somewhat thin in terms of starting pitching. However, with ace Jered Weaver out until perhaps June with a fractured non-throwing elbow, they're downright desperate. And speaking of desperation, the Angels, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman, have signed veteran right-hander Kip Wells to a minor-league contract.

The 35-year-old Wells logged a 4.58 ERA (80 ERA+) in seven starts for the Padres last season. Before that, he hadn't pitched in the majors since 2009. Across parts of 12 seasons, Wells has pitched to a 4.71 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 1.52 K/BB ratio in 296 appearances, 219 of those starts.

In a not-unrelated matter, the Angels rank 13th in the AL with a team ERA of 5.38.
