The Angels signed veteran second baseman Luis Alicea and oft-injured pitcher Steve Ontiveros to minor league contracts Monday, and both will join the club for spring training workouts in Tempe, Ariz., in mid-February. The team also was close Monday night to an agreement on a one-year contract for pitcher Allen Watson, who was acquired from the San Francisco Giants for first baseman J.T. Snow in November and is eligible for arbitration.

Unwilling to pay a high price for depth, the Angels lost second baseman Luis Alicea and utility player Jack Howell to other teams Tuesday, leaving them with two more holes to fill. Alicea signed a two-year, $1.5-million deal with the Texas Rangers. Howell signed a two-year, $1.05 million contract with the Houston Astros. Both players became available without requiring compensation when the Angels declined Sunday to offer salary arbitration.

Luis Alicea could see the writing on the wall for a week, but not until Friday did the writing actually hit the wall in the Angel clubhouse: Alicea wasn't in the lineup and is no longer the team's starting second baseman. "That's my life story," Alicea said before the game against the Red Sox. "This happens to me every year." Well, not like this. Alicea has been deemed expendable in the past, traded by St.

It seemed like an afterthought at the time, one of those run-of-the-mill, late winter signings to create more competition in camp. Then Randy Velarde injures his elbow making a routine throw in practice, and all of a sudden Luis Alicea is the Angels' opening-day second baseman. It's funny how these things work out. Alicea said the main reason he signed with Anaheim as a free agent is that he knew Manager Terry Collins liked to use his bench players a lot.

He was theirs for next to nothing, a proven major league infielder who could add depth and experience and not break the bank. Luis Alicea didn't have many takers after becoming a free agent this winter. But the Angels, knowing a bargain when they saw one, leaped at the chance to sign him. Best of all, it wouldn't cost them more than a minor-league contract. Alicea would come to spring training as a non-roster player, and if he looked good, he would be a dependable jack-of-all-trades.

Second baseman Luis Alicea got dressed in the Angel clubhouse, stood up from his chair, walked to the Oakland Coliseum field and took batting practice Friday afternoon. No great accomplishment . . . unless you saw Alicea five days ago. "I had to roll out of bed to get up," Alicea said of the severe back spasms that have sidelined him this week. "I had to walk like a hunchback. At one point I felt like I was almost broken in half."
