• The Angels still don't have a starting pitcher listed for Tuesday, a decision that will seemingly come down to Joe Blanton or Jerome Williams. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday he wanted to "get through today and tomorrow" before making an announcement. Blanton spent Friday and Saturday working on mechanical adjustments with pitching coach Mike Butcher.
• Ryan Madson continues to throw off flat ground, trying to make as much forward progress as possible without suffering a setback on his surgically repaired right elbow. Asked when he could throw off a mound again, Madson said, "When I don't feel pain anymore."
