Anderson update: Left fielder Garret Anderson, who suffered a torn right hip flexor tendon running out a ground ball against White Sox on April 27, is making progress and might be available to DH within a week."He ran in the outfield, and he's feeling much better," said Scioscia. "I don't think Garret is going to settle into a full DH role, but it is something were considering." Anderson was hitting .265 with one home run and 10 RBIs when he suffered the injury. Willits willing his way: Rookie Reggie Willits has hit safely in 14 of 15 and 24 of his last 26 games and is batting .381 in that span. Currently, the left fielder leads all Major League rookies in average (.366) and stolen bases (10). He also ranks second among rookies with a .448 on-base percentage and 20 runs scored. Cruise control in Freeway Series: The Angels have won their last four games against the Dodgers and are 13-3 in the last 16 games against the Dodgers at Angel Stadium. Under Scioscia, the Angels are 27-17 in the Freeway Series and currently lead the series, 32-16. Coming up: The Angels have an off-day before traveling to Detroit on Tuesday to open a three-game series at Comerica Park against the defending American League champions at 4:05 p.m. PT. John Lackey (6-3, 2.43 ERA) will take on Mike Maroth (3-0, 4.69 ERA).
