Boesch called up by Angels, Calhoun on DL

AP - Sports

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels have placed outfielder Kole Calhoun on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a sprained ligament in his right ankle and selected outfielder Brennan Boesch to the major league roster.

Calhoun is batting .250 with three homers and six RBIs in 14 games. He had been playing right field in place of injured slugger Josh Hamilton. Calhoun is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after rolling in his ankle in the 11th inning of the Angels' 10-9 loss to Oakland on Tuesday night.

Boesch, who signed with the Angels in January as a free agent, began the season with Triple-A Salt Lake. He played in 23 games last year with Yankees after spending his first three big league seasons with Detroit.

To make room for Boesch on the 40-man roster, the Angels transferred right-handed pitcher Ryan Brasier to the 60-day DL.
