• Josh Hamilton continues to progress in his rehab from a strained left calf, which he suffered two weeks ago Tuesday. But Hamilton has yet to run full speed, with the Angels controlling his intensity, and Scioscia doesn't expect him to return to game action this week, saying the team will have a more precise return date this weekend.
• Dane De La Rosa (right forearm strain) is expected to pick up a baseball at some point in the next couple days. And though a return by Opening Day is still questionable, Scioscia is confident the Angels dodged a major injury, saying: "As far as this being something serious, that this guy's going to miss a season or something, that's not the case at all. This is something that seems very manageable."
