Worth noting

• Erick Aybar is "feeling better," after spending a few days doing aqua therapy in Arizona earlier this week, but he still isn't sure when he'll resume running and his left heel continues to give him problems swinging from the right side. Aybar is eligible to come off the disabled list Thursday, but probably won't be ready by then. "He's not quite day to day," Scioscia said, "but he's getting close."

• Weaver is expected to play catch on Wednesday, marking the first time he'll throw a baseball since fracturing his left elbow in his April 7 start at Rangers Ballpark. The Angels' ace had a follow-up exam on his elbow last week that came back negative, and he will probably have to be reevaluated once more before getting cleared to throw. Weaver is expected to be out until mid-May.

• Veteran utility infielder Bill Hall, resigned to another Minor League contract on April 6, has reported to Salt Lake after spending two weeks in extended spring training to finish rehabbing from a calf strain, one of two leg injuries that robbed him of an opportunity to make the Angels out of Spring Training.

• Reliever Chad Cordero, who began the regular season pitching out of the Cal League, made his Triple-A debut on Saturday and pitched a scoreless inning.
