• Newly signed outfielder Josh Hamilton is already in Arizona, and manager Mike Scioscia said he could take some batting practice at the Angels' Tempe Diablo Stadium complex on Tuesday.
• With Interleague Play scattered throughout the 2013 season, Angels starters are going to have to spend more time on their hitting this year. "Which is better, because I feel like it'll get you more involved in the game," said starting pitcher C.J. Wilson, who already has a blister on his hand from taking batting practice.
• Alberto Callaspo, on giving up a year of free agency by signing a two-year, $8.975 million deal: "I have one more year of arbitration, and I think they want me one more year as a free agent. I like it here. I like to play here. I know everybody here, so I'm excited to stay here."
For the first time in a long time, Callaspo stayed away from winter ball this offseason in order to rest a throwing shoulder that has been dealing with some tendinitis.
