Pauley the odd man out of Angels bullpen
OAKLAND -- Though the team has not yet made it official, the Angels were planning to designate right-handed reliever David Pauley for assignment on Wednesday night or Thursday and call up infielder Andrew Romine from Triple-A Salt Lake.

The organization will have 10 days to trade Pauley, release him or try to pass him through waivers. If he isn't claimed, the team can send him to Salt Lake.

A bullpen move was expected, as the Angels have been carrying 13 pitchers out of necessity after their 13-inning game last Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia said on Wednesday that the team was "approaching the point" where it wouldn't need the extra eighth reliever.

Pauley (4.82 ERA in 9 1/3 innings this season) was one of the candidates to go, along with fellow right-handers David Carpenter and Bobby Cassevah.

Romine is hitting .312 in 157 at-bats for Salt Lake this season, to go along with two home runs and 17 RBIs. He split last season between Triple-A and Los Angeles, playing 10 games with the Angels.
