• The Angels sent $360,500 in international slot bonus money to the Mets in exchange for two Minor Leaguers, outfielder Julio Concepcion and right-hander Andres Perez. Concepcion will be assigned to rookie-level Orem, and Perez goes to the Arizona Summer League. The Angels don't physically give the Mets any money; they simply have that much less to spend for the rest of this international signing period.
• Jason Vargas (blood clot in left armpit area) is closer to getting in a rehab assignment than Sean Burnett (left elbow impingement), but it's still "going to take a little more work for Jason," Scioscia said. Both continue to throw bullpen sessions.
• Peter Bourjos (right wrist) is still hopeful of being cleared to swing a bat on Saturday.
