• The Angels and GovX.com have launched an online verification ticketing service exclusive to members of the U.S. Military, law-enforcement personnel and first responders to prove specially priced Angels tickets for 2014. More information for qualified fans can be found at angels.com/govx. The Angels will offer up to 50 percent off select home games.
• With reliever Yoslan Herrera getting optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake and utility man Grant Green coming up, the Angels are back to having the traditional 13 position players and 12 pitchers. "We got through the day off, and we're going to have another day off next Thursday. We feel like hopefully with the offensive side, especially with a right-handed bat, is something that will really help us."
