Worth noting

• Angels third baseman Alberto Callaspo stressed Wednesday that he's pretty much already back at his playing weight, which is about 200 pounds. Scioscia said Tuesday that Callaspo is "not far from his playing weight" after coming into camp 18 to 20 pounds overweight. Callaspo believes that may be a little bit of an overestimate, but admitted to coming in "a little overweight" after taking most of the winter off.

• Scioscia said Hank Conger's throwing is "getting much better," but added that it's "always a work in progress." In the first inning Wednesday, Conger's throw to third base on an attempted steal sailed wide of Bill Hall, allowing a run to score. Consistency with his throwing may be the only thing standing in the way of Conger winning the job as the Angels' backup catcher.

• Hall, trying to make the Angels' Opening Day roster as a utility player, left Wednesday's game against the Giants in the third inning because of a tight right quad. In nine at-bats this spring, Hall has three hits -- all doubles -- and four RBIs. Hall initially hurt the quad while running up the first-base line in his first at-bat in the second inning, then aggravated it while charging a slow roller the next half-inning. "Nothing serious," he said. "Hopefully only a couple days."
