Angels recall Barry Enright from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Barry EnrightBarry Enright doesn’t have outstanding Triple-A numbers, a long history of pitching out of the bullpen in the majors, or even much of a chance of sticking around with the Angels beyond this week.

What he does have is the ability to pitch multiple innings in relief, something the Angels desperately need to help a battered, taxed bullpen.

Enright was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday afternoon. He takes the place of right-hander David Carpenter, who was assigned to Salt Lake after allowing four runs in one-third of an inning in yesterday’s 11-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.

Enright is 1-2 with a 9.61 earned-run average in four starts this season for the Bees. He made three appearances with the Angels last year, all in relief; two were scoreless and the other saw him allow six runs in one inning against the Seattle Mariners.

Garrett Richards starts tonight against the Mariners.
