Worth noting

• The Angels are not among the teams scouting Joel Hanrahan, the veteran closer who had Tommy John surgery in May 2013 and was believed to be taking part in a showcase for interested clubs on Thursday.

• Slap-hitting outfielder J.B. Shuck batted sixth on Tuesday, even though he doesn't bring much power. "Right now," Scioscia said, "J.B. is the functional hitter that you want hitting behind Howie [Kendrick]."
