Left-handed hitters batted .226 with a .570 OPS against him last season.The Brewers non-tendered him rather than paying him a salary of about $1.5 million in arbitration. Jennings joins a bullpen mix that was without an experienced lefty. The top relievers on the depth chart are all right-handed, with Williams Jerez as the most likely lefty to have a chance to pitch in the majors. Jennings will make $1 million if he makes the Angels’ squad, with another potential $500,000 in performance bonuses.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img
