Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Jorge Cantu and OF Ryan Langerhans arrived at camp Tuesday, Feb. 21. Both worked out together on the backfields and were chatting with each other all afternoon. The two are non-roster invitees to camp, and there is currently no spot on the roster for either. One might open if the team makes a move, and many expect that to happen. If 3Bs Alberto Callaspo or Maicer Izturis is moved, Cantu might have a spot. If OF Bobby Abreu is dealt or won't report, Langerhans might work his way onto the roster. "I think they're both really interesting to us," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Ryan's a guy that is a left-handed bat, and is a good defender in the outfield. And Jorge is really interesting, because this guy was an RBI machine."
