The Angels made their big moves -- releasing Bobby Abreu, promoting Mike Trout and trading for Ernesto Frieri -- when they were struggling about a month ago.

Now that they're hot, their roster moves are largely procedural. They announced Tuesday that outfielder Kole Calhoun has been optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake; reliever David Pauley was selected to the major-league roster; and Vernon Wells was placed on the 60-day disabled list, though it won't affect his return date (probably in early August).

Also, catcher Bobby Wilson, on the seven-day concussion disabled list, is playing a rehab game tonight for Single-A Inland Empire.
