Worth noting

• Jered Weaver pitched in Arizona at extended spring workouts on Wednesday morning. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Weaver's outing went "very well" and that in the best-case scenario he could rejoin the Angels next week.

Weaver allowed one run on six hits in 5 2/3 innings of work. The right-hander threw 75 pitches -- 62 of them were strikes -- and recorded nine strikeouts.

• As the Angels have suffered numerous injuries through the season, J.B. Shuck has turned into an everyday player. Shuck is in the midst of a three-game hitting streak and believes the rhythm of playing every day has helped him find a rhythm.

"You get into a different type of rhythm than being on the bench," Shuck said. "It has helped me get into my swing and getting some at bats has helped me get comfortable at the plate."
