Utility infielder Andrew Romine, who was hitting .274 in 90 games for triple-A Salt Lake, was called up by the Angels on Monday night to replace outfielder Mike Trout, who was sent back to double-A Arkansas on Monday morning.

Romine, who had one hit in seven at-bats in a brief three-game stint with the Angels in June, will travel to Orange County on Tuesday morning and be in uniform against the Minnesota Twins at Angel Stadium on Tuesday night.
