Worth noting

• Outfielder Brennan Boesch, who's fighting for a spot off the bench, was ejected by home-plate umpire Jeff Morrow in the second inning of Saturday's 4-4 tie with the Rockies for arguing balls and strikes. Scioscia didn't think it was warranted, saying Boesch was "walking away and wasn't even looking at the umpire. I think you just had a young umpire who wasn't very experienced at how to handle something like that."

• In order to stay on his once-every-five-days schedule, Garrett Richards will pitch in a Minor League game during the Angels' off-day on Tuesday. In his first three Cactus League starts, Richards has a 5.40 ERA in 11 2/3 innings.

Hector Santiago and Joe Blanton will start on the Angels' third and final split-squad day Monday, but Scioscia hasn't decided who will pitch at home (against the Giants) and who will travel to Mesa, Ariz., to face the Cubs.
