Worth noting

• Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols and Mike Trout will take part in a news conference from the Angels' Spring Training site in Tempe, Ariz., at noon PT on Thursday. FOX Sports West and MLB Network will carry it live.

• MLB on FOX released its 2013 national broadcast schedule for the Saturday Game of the Week on Tuesday, and seven Angels games are in the 24-week slate. They are: April 6 at Rangers; April 20 vs. Tigers; May 4 vs. Orioles; May 18 vs. White Sox; June 8 at Red Sox; June 15 vs. Yankees; and July 27 at A's. The last two weekends of the regular season have yet to be determined.

• Lefty reliever Sean Burnett, who had two bone spurs removed from his pitching elbow over the offseason, threw four or five bullpen sessions back home in Florida before reporting to Spring Training. "It feels great," he said. "I haven't had any setbacks. It feels like it does every February. Nothing different."
