Former Angels All Star Chone Figgins will sign a one-day contract with Los Angeles to retire with the team he played with for eight years, the Angels announced Sunday, according to Bill Shakin of the Los Angeles Times.

Figgins last played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014, hitting .217 over 38 games. He did not play in either the 2013 or ’15 seasons.

Over his time with the Angels, where he spent the first eight seasons of his 12-year career, Figgins hit .291 with 280 stolen bases, setting the Angels’ franchise record. He was a member of the 2002 Angels squad that won the World Series during his rookie season, and he got one hit in the only postseason at-bat he took that year.
