Angels unconditionally release Bill Hall.

Bill HallBill Hall couldn’t stay healthy.

That might have been the only thing the multi-positional veteran couldn’t do for the Angels, but it was enough to earn his unconditional release on Friday.

The Angels had until Tuesday to decide whether to keep Hall in the organization at a cost of $100,000 or release him. They didn’t need that much time.

Hall had not appeared in a spring game since Feb. 27, when he injured his right quadriceps muscle. He hadn’t done any baseball activities since pulling his left calf muscle March 13 doing infield drills. Hall made only nine plate appearances this spring and the Angels simply couldn’t make the commitment.

The Angels still have an opening on the 40-man roster, and still could use a multi-positional infielder to replace Maicer Izturis. They have the option of re-signing Hall to a minor-league deal.
