NEW YORK -- A day after bringing up young sidearm pitcher David Carpenter from Triple-A, the Angels made another move to try to find the right combinations for their beleaguered bullpen.

The Angels designated Rich Thompson for assignment and recalled left-hander Brad Mills from Triple-A Salt Lake before their game Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Two days ago, Thompson blew a save, giving up four runs in a loss at Minnesota. He pitched all of last season with the Angels, going 1-3 with a 3.00 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 54 innings.

Thompson, who is out of options, could accept the demotion to Salt Lake. If not, the Angels have 10 days to trade or release him.
