• Angels reliever Sean Burnett, recovering from forearm surgery in August, threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Sunday. Burnett threw his first one Thursday, though he also had a session that closely resembled a bullpen on March 9.
• The Angels handed out Minor League awards prior to Sunday's game. Outfielder Zach Borenstein (best offensive player) and shortstop Eric Stamets (best defensive player) were given the Kenny Meyers Memorial Award; reliever Michael Morin was given the Howie Gershberg Award for best pitcher; Class-A Inland Empire manager Denny Hocking was given the Preston Gomez Award for a high standard of excellence; Minor League hitting coordinator Paul Sorrento was given the Mara Forcey Award for outstanding dedication to the organization.
• The Angels recently released left-handed-pitching prospect Andrew Taylor from the organization. Taylor, 27, made three appearances as a September callup in 2012, but entered Spring Training last year with a slight tear in his labrum and missed the entire 2013 season.
• Raul Ibanez is expected to make his spring debut at first base in Monday's split squad, likely against the Cubs in Mesa, Ariz. Right fielder Kole Calhoun had his first stint at first base after Albert Pujols came out of the game Sunday.
