Alberto Callaspo The Angels have found a third baseman, getting Alberto Callaspo from the Royals for right-hander Sean O'Sullivan and minor league lefty Will Smith.

Callaspo, a switch-hitter, has played second and third this season, but also has logged games at shortstop and in the corner outfield spots in his big league career. He's hitting .275/.308/.410 with eight home runs and 43 RBI.

In return, the Royals get O'Sullivan, who got the win for the Angels on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, going six innings, allowing two hits and two runs, walking three and striking out four. Overall, in five appearances this season, he's 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in 13 innings. His previous four appearances were in relief.

Smith was demoted to Double-A Arkansas, where he's 1-2 with a 7.23 ERA. He was 2-5 with a 5.60 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Royals, as they should be, are in full-out sell mode. Look for reliever Kyle Farnsworth and outfielder David DeJesus to be next out the door. before next weekend's trade deadline.

The team activated Rick Ankiel from the disabled list before Thursday's game with the Yankees and will make another move when O'Sullivan joins the team. Wilson Betemit is starting at third base in Callaspo's place in Thursday's game in New York.
