Worth noting

• Josh Hamilton on Thursday had what manager Mike Scioscia called "a re-charge day," a couple days after making his spring debut. The Angels' new right fielder is expected to start Friday against the Dodgers' split squad.

• Sean Burnett (stiff lower back) said he already feels good enough to throw off a bullpen mound, but is waiting on clearance from the Angels' medical department. The lefty reliever threw off flat ground again on Thursday and doesn't believe he needs much time to get game ready.

• Former shortstop and fan favorite David Eckstein was in Angels camp for the second straight spring, working with the young infielders. He got there earlier in the week and left on Thursday, but Eckstein will be back later in spring to work on the Minor League side.
