Angels Recall Alexi Amarista, Gil Velazquez From Triple A

The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners are set to battle Tuesday night in Anaheim in the second game of a three-game series. Ervin Santana and Felix Hernandez face off in what should be a great pitchers' duel. Before the game, the Angels added a pair of infielders to the active roster, recalling Alexi Amarista and Gil Velazquez.

Amarista is in his third stint with the Angels this year. He has seven hits in 48 at-bats in 20 games with the Angels earlier this season. The 31-year old Velasquez hit .328 with 25 doubles and 17 stolen bases with Triple A Salt Lake this season. His last game in the majors came on May 16, 2009, while with the Boston Red Sox.
