Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced his upcoming rotation after Sunday's 4-1 win over the White Sox. Starting the three-game home series against the Mariners, which begins Tuesday, will be Zack Greinke, C.J. Wilson and Dan Haren, respectively. Jered Weaver is slated for Friday's series opener against the Rangers and Ervin Santana would pitch Saturday, on seven days' rest.
Maicer Izturis played well while starting in place of second baseman Howie Kendrick on Friday, hitting a line-drive single, dropping down a sacrifice bunt and playing solid defense. But Scioscia downplayed the possibility of any platoon forming.
"Alberto [Callaspo] has really picked up his game, Erick [Aybar] has playing at an incredibly high level, and Howie, since the second half, has been very consistent," Scioscia said. "I don't think any of those guys are necessarily platoon players. But Izzy is ready at any time to get a spot start or to come off the bench in a game."
Torii Hunter's son, Torii Hunter Jr., has committed to play football and baseball at Notre Dame, the Angels' veteran outfielder announced via his Twitter account. Hunter Jr., one of the nation's top amateur wide receivers, also had offers from Nebraska and Arizona State.
