• Kevin Jepsen's MRI confirmed a strained right lat. Jepsen, placed on the disabled list on Saturday, will be shut down for a week, then be re-evaluated. The Angels don't believe it'll be a long-term injury, but the recovery time for a strained lat varies considerably by pitcher.
• Outfielder Scott Cousins, who was designated for assignment on Saturday in order to create room for lefty Michael Roth on the 40-man roster, cleared waivers on Wednesday and will report to Triple-A Salt Lake.
