Angels Roster Moves: Hank Conger, Barry Enright Called Up

The Angels added two more players to their roster on Tuesday afternoon, calling up catcher Hank Conger and right-handed pitcher Barry Enright from Triple-A Salt Lake City, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

Conger, a graduate of Huntington Beach High School, hit .295 with 10 home runs and 45 RBI in 67 games for the Bees in 2012 while battling a nagging shoulder injury. He will be the fourth catcher on the Halos roster, joining Chris Iannetta, Bobby Wilson and John Hester, and will most likely be used as a left-handed bat off the bench.

Enright, a product of Pepperdine University, was acquired in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks for infielder Frazier Hall on July 24, 2012. He struggled at Triple-A Reno at the beginning of the year, posting an 8-6 record with a 5.87 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP, but bounced back after the trade and went 5-1 for the Bees, posting a 2.73 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 52 2/3 innings. He could be called upon as a long reliever or put on mop-up duty for the Halos down the stretch.
