• Kendrick (sprained left knee) hit in the cage and did some agility drills on Tuesday. The Angels are hopeful that he'll be ready when he's first eligible to be activated from the disabled list (Aug. 21).
• Peter Bourjos wasn't activated on Tuesday, after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his fifth game for Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. "He's definitely within a number of days," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, adding that Bourjos needs more timing after missing about six weeks with a fractured right wrist. It appears the soonest he'll join the Angels is this weekend in Southern California.
• Tommy Hanson, optioned after Monday's game, will make his first start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday. That's the same day Jerome Williams is scheduled to start in the Majors, which would make it easy for Hanson to replace Williams in the rotation down the road if the Angels go that route.
