Worth noting

• Left-hander Tyler Skaggs will start Saturday against the Dodgers at Angel Stadium in the Angels' final tuneup.

• Scioscia on new No. 1 hitter Kole Calhoun, the right fielder who will open his first full big league season Monday: "Kole had a terrific spring. He's been very comfortable with the challenge.

"He had a great year in Triple-A, and I think he backed it up with a good half-year with us. He's an important piece, no doubt."

Calhoun is hitting .281 with two home runs and 10 RBIs this spring.

Scioscia said he didn't believe the pressure of the new role would affect Calhoun.

"He's just going to play baseball," Scioscia said.
