Worth noting

• Scott Cousins cleared waivers and is now in Triple-A Salt Lake.

• Angels pitchers have begun hitting in the batting cage as the team has a pair of Interleague games at Dodger Stadium next week. C.J. Wilson and Joe Blanton are tentatively scheduled to start the two contests.

• Tommy Hanson is in Arizona and will face hitters in the next couple of days, but it is still unknown when he will return to the Angels' rotation.
