Worth noting

• Because the Angels have an off-day on Monday, they will skip the fifth spot in the rotation. With Enright sent down and Tommy Hanson still on the restricted list, the Angels have not named a fifth starter.

• Sean Burnett threw a bullpen session on Thursday and appears to be nearing a return.

"If it's not for this series, the next series we hope," Scioscia said.

A brief rehab appearance remains a possibility for Burnett.

• Kevin Jepsen also threw a bullpen session on Thursday and may only need to throw one more before heading out on a rehab assignment.
