Worth noting

• To commemorate Pujols' 500th home run, the Angels will distribute a commemorative bobblehead for the May 21 game against the Astros "while supplies last." The bobblehead will depict Pujols pointing to the sky, with "500" in gold.

• Angels relievers Sean Burnett (recovery from August elbow surgery) and Dane De La Rosa (right shoulder irritation) are both slated to throw in a simulated game in Arizona on Thursday.
