Versatile Romine back in the Majors
SEATTLE -- The Angels designated right-hander David Pauley for assignment Thursday and recalled infielder Andrew Romine from Triple-A Salt Lake. Pauley was 0-1 with a 4.82 ERA in four relief appearances this season.

"We were able to reset from 13 pitchers -- we didn't need them -- down to 12," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Gives us some more options, a little bit more depth on the bench right now.

"[Romine] can play three infield positions, he runs well and he's been swinging the bat very well, too. If there's a role for him, he'll get a chance."

Romine was hitting .312 with two home runs and 17 RBIs for Salt Lake, also having swiped 14 bases. This is the first time Romine has joined the big league club this year, having appeared in five games last season for the Angels.
