Pestano received an invitation to spring training Friday, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Angels have recalled right-hander Vinne Pestano from Triple-A Salt Lake City on Friday, according to the Orange County Register. Pestano started the year up with the Angels, but was sent down to the minors at the end of May. Pestano has not been overly sharp in Triple-A, posting a 4.41 ERA in 16 1/3 innings of relief. But the Angels are in need of a fresh arm in the bullpen with closer Huston Street unavailable due to injury.
