In need of spark, Angels call up Boesch …

The Angels, looking for an offensive spark amid a slow start to the second half, called up left-handed-hitting outfielder Brennan Boesch prior to Tuesday’s game against the Phillies, optioning right-hander Caleb Clay back to Triple-A Salt Lake to create room on the roster.

Boesch, signed to a Minor League contract over the offseason, will bat seventh while serving as the designated hitter in the opener of a two-game set. The 29-year-old played seven games with the Angels earlier this season and sported a .326/.380/.625 slash line with 22 homers and 75 RBIs in the Pacific Coast League.

The Angels went into the All-Star break with the highest-scoring offense in the Major Leagues. Since then, though, they rank 28th in the Majors in OPS and tied for 28th in runs per game. Besides slotting Boesch in at DH, no major changes were made to the lineup against former Angels right-hander Jerome Williams.

Boesch, already on the 40-man roster, puts the Angels back at the traditional four-man bench and seven-man bullpen.
