Worth noting

• Jered Weaver, who is out with a broken left elbow, expected to play catch from 120 feet prior to Thursday's game. Scioscia said the right-hander needs to throw from 200 feet and be able to repeat it before he starts throwing from a mound again.

• Alberto Callaspo is scheduled to play a full nine-inning game for Class A Inland Empire on Thursday. His return to the Angels is expected soon.

• When Angels players arrived to the clubhouse on Thursday, there were presents waiting in their lockers. Albert Pujols gave each of his teammates a pair of red Beats by Dre headphones.

• The Angels signed right-hander Josh Judy to a Minor League contract on Thursday. The 27-year-old had been pitching in independent baseball and has not appeared in the Majors since a 2011 stint with the Indians.
