• Hanson, acquired from the Braves in exchange for reliever Jordan Walden on Nov. 30, will be sporting Torii Hunter's old number in Anaheim: 48. It's the same number he wore in Atlanta.

• The Red Sox called Dipoto just before the start of the Winter Meetings because they wanted to offer Gary DiSarcina the managing job with Triple-A Pawtucket. DiSarcina, with the good graces of Dipoto, took the job because he wanted another opportunity to manage and it's close to home.

"I think he's a great fit for that role," Dipoto said. "We wish him nothing but the best. He'll always be loved here. And I hope there's a day when he comes back and joins the Angels family again, because in our hearts, he'll never be gone."
