• The Angels announced three more cuts on Monday, whittling their Spring Training roster to 50 players. Left-handed reliever Brandon Sisk, acquired from the Royals for Ervin Santana, was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake. Center fielder Travis Witherspoon, ranked eighth in the Angels' system by MLB.com, was optioned to Double-A Arkansas. Starting-pitching prospect A.J. Schugel, ranked 16th, was reassigned to Minor League camp and will probably start the season in the Triple-A rotation.
• Prior to Monday's game against the Indians, the Angels played a "B" game in the back fields of the Indians' complex in Goodyear, Ariz., losing 3-0. Starter Barry Enright gave up one run on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings, and Brad Mills was charged with two unearned runs in four frames. Tommy Field (shortstop), J.B. Shuck (left field), Luis Jimenez (first base), Scott Cousins (center field), Trent Oeltjen (designated hitter), Luke Carlin (catcher), Kaleb Cowart (third base), Taylor Lindsey (second base) and Randal Grichuk (right field) made up the starting lineup.
• Josh Hamilton was originally slated to start Monday's game, his third straight in the starting lineup, at designated hitter. Just before the game, though, he moved to right field. "We figured he was going to DH when we talked yesterday," manager Mike Scioscia said, "but he came into the park today and felt really good and wanted to just play right field and try to get some throws in, which he did and was good for him."
