The Los Angeles Angels added to their overall depth by signing infielder Charles Leblanc to a minor league contract. He made his major league debut in 2022 with the Miami Marlins and now will try his chances with the Halos.

In 48 games with the Marlins in 2022, Leblanc hit .263 with four home runs and 11 runs batted in. He had 10 doubles and two stolen bases as well. 

The biggest issue with him was strikeouts, and it seemed to cause concern for Miami. He spent the entire 2023 season in Triple-A, and put up solid numbers.

Leblanc hit .252 with 12 home runs and 34 runs batted in over 94 games played. He also had a 16.5 percent walk rate in the minors last season, something the Angels likely caught on to. 

Originally a fourth-round pick of the Texas Rangers in the 2016 MLB Draft, Leblanc is hoping for his time with the Angels to mean something. He has played all over the infield in the past, but primarily played second base with the Marlins.

The Halos could use the depth on their roster, and if he performs well in spring training, maybe he can earn a spot. It's unclear if this minor-league deal includes a spring training invite, but with his experience in the big leagues already, it could happen.
