• Angels ace Jered Weaver is slated to start the Cactus League opener against the Cubs on Friday and will probably pitch as long as three innings. The Angels have yet to announce how the order will play out after Weaver, and C.J. Wilson's line drive to the head on Tuesday could certainly impact it.
• Manager Mike Scioscia called the new regulations for home-plate collisions -- where runners can't deviate from their direct path in order to make contact with the catcher, and catchers must give the runner a direct path if they don't have possession of the ball -- "a work in progress," but he doesn't think it'll change much for catchers.
"I think the distinction is going to be to make sure you have the ball in your possession," Scioscia said, "and you have to stay closer to the tag lane because you have to wait for the ball longer."
