Worth noting

• Alberto Callaspo -- recovering from a strained right calf -- is doing "much better," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hopefully, Alberto's deal is short term and we'll see how he progresses the next two or three days."

• The Angels signed Kip Wells to a Minor League contract as he will be the fifth starter in the rotation at Triple-A Salt Lake. Wells appeared in seven games for the Padres last season and posted a 4.58 ERA.

• Ryan Madson is scheduled to throw his next bullpen session on Sunday.

• Josh Hamilton is hitting .179 and has yet to hit a home run this season, but the slugger feels his at-bats have been getting better and his manager agrees.

"I know he'd like a couple more hits to fall in, our team needs some of those to fall in, but this guy is going to be productive," Scioscia said. "The quality of his at-bats from his first 10 to where he is [now has improved]."
