• Asked about the rotation order coming out of the next off-day, Scioscia said he's "going to make some adjustments," but he didn't provide specifics on his plan. Jerome Williams will start on Wednesday, followed by an off-day on Thursday, then a three-game weekend series in Seattle and another off-day on Monday before playing three games at Tampa Bay.
• This offseason, Angels third-base coach Dino Ebel will manage the Estrellas de Oriente of the Dominican Winter League. Ebel did it 10 years ago and said he "had fun."
"They love their baseball down there, which is great," Ebel said. "And the pressure to win -- the players know they have to perform; the coaching staff, manager, they know they have to win. It's good. And it's great for the players."
The season starts Oct. 18.
