Angels manager Mike Scioscia anticipates -- though he didn't exactly sound certain -- keeping his rotation on schedule this week, regardless of Thursday's off-day. That would mean former Rangers starter C.J. Wilson would get the nod for the series opener in Texas on Friday, against new Rangers starter Yu Darvish.
Angels catcher Chris Iannetta returned to the lineup Sunday after missing the previous three games with soreness in his right hand/wrist area. He was hitless in three at-bats.
Wednesday's game against the Twins will now be aired on KCOP-TV (13).
