Worth noting

• The Angels games on Tuesday and Friday, both 7 p.m. PT start times, will be broadcast on KCOP.

• Mark Lowe (left neck strain) is slated to join infielder Alberto Callaspo in a rehab appearance for Class A Inland Empire on Tuesday. The right-handed reliever is not eligible to be activated off the disabled list until May 5.

• Manager Mike Scioscia said he's thought about putting Mark Trumbo in the cleanup spot on a more frequent basis, but prefers to stay with a platoon for now, with Trumbo fourth against lefties and Hamilton there against righties. The Angels will have seen eight straight right-handed starters before lefty Tommy Milone takes the mound for the A's on Wednesday.
