ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Angels have bolstered their bullpen by acquiring left-handed reliever Joe Thatcher and outfielder Tony Campana for outfielder Zach Borenstein and minor league right-hander Joey Krehbiel.

The sidearm-throwing Thatcher was 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA with 25 strikeouts and three walks in 37 games for Arizona this season. Thatcher is 9-12 with a 3.26 ERA during his eight-year career that started at San Diego from 2007 to 2013.

The 23-year-old Borenstein was the Angels' minor league player of the year last season and hit .262 with seven homers and 50 RBIs in 78 games between Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Salt Lake this year.

Campana hit .198 in parts of two seasons with Arizona.

The Diamondbacks also recalled left-hander Eury De la Rosa from Triple-A Reno.
