Angels Designate David Pauley For Assignment

The Angels have designated right-hander David Pauley for assignment, according to MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez (Twitter link). Infielder Andrew Romine has been recalled to take his roster spot.

The 29-year-old Pauley appeared in five games for the Angels this season, totaling a 4.35 ERA in 10 1/3 innings of work. He struck out just four batters while walking three (one intentional) and allowing a whopping 16 hits. Pauley, typically known as a groundball pitcher, induced them at just a 29.3% clip in this season's small sample.

For his career, he sports a 4.51 ERA (which matches his 4.51 FIP exactly), 5.3 K/9, 2.9 BB/9 and 47.7% groundball rate over 203 1/3 Major League innings. In addition to the Angels, he's seen time with the Mariners, Red Sox, and Tigers.

This is the second time Pauley has been DFA'ed by the Angels this season, with the previous instance coming back on May 23. He went unclaimed and was outrighted to Triple-A a few days later.
