• Dane De La Rosa (right forearm strain) still looks on track to be activated for Friday's game against the Mets, but Scioscia didn't want to commit to that, since De La Rosa still had at least two more rehab outings to make on Monday and Wednesday.
• Raul Ibanez made his first start in left field on Monday. The 41-year-old designated hitter won't come close to matching the 832 1/3 innings he spent in the outfield with the Mariners last year, but Scioscia has said he'd like to get him some time out there periodically.
