ANAHEIM -- The Angels recalled catcher Carlos Perez from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, and designated catcher Drew Butera for assignment.
No. 1 catcher Chris Iannetta -- who started Monday against the Mariners and Felix Hernandez -- is off to a .098 start, and Butera was hitting .190. The Angels have gotten only one RBI from the catcher's spot (by Iannetta) this season.
