The Los Angeles Angels designated infielder Nick Franklin for assignment on Saturday and called up right-handed pitcher Troy Scribner from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Franklin was acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers on June 30 for a player to be named or cash considerations. He was 3-for-24, batting .125/.300/.167 with two RBIs in 13 games for the Angels.
Scribner was 10-3 with a 4.16 ERA in 18 games (17 starts) at Salt Lake. He was called up to bolster the bullpen with reliever Yusmeiro Petit starting the game in Toronto on Saturday.
