• Kendrick was not in the starting lineup Wednesday for precautionary reasons, as the Angels continue to ease him back from a sprained left knee. Kendrick had started five straight games, while playing all nine innings for the first time Tuesday, and has hit .333 in that span.

• The Angels could make some changes to the rotation order coming out of Thursday's off-day. For now, Jered Weaver, Jerome Williams and C.J. Wilson are slated to start the three-game series in Seattle. But Scioscia left open the possibility of adjusting some things: "There's some things we're going to look at, but we'll just get through today, evaluate some stuff and just see where they are."
