The Los Angeles Angels placed starting second baseman Luis Rengifo on the paternity list Wednesday among a litany of moves.

Per MLB rules, players placed on the paternity list are allowed up to three days of leave.

Rengifo is batting .233 with two home runs and 10 runs in 26 games this season.

Also Wednesday, the Angels recalled INF Jack Mayfield from Triple-A Salt Lake, selected the contract of outfielder Dillon Thomas, optioned LHP Jose Suarez to Salt Lake and designated RHP Ty Buttrey for assignment.

Mayfield is batting .220 with a homer and six RBIs in 20 games this season with the Angels.

Thomas is batting .296 with eight HRs and 39 RBIs at Salt Lake. He made his major league debut with Seattle last June. He has nine big league at-bats.
