• Angels utility man Grant Green was scratched prior to Tuesday's game, prompting Raul Ibanez to move from designated hitter to left field and C.J. Cron to be inserted in the starting lineup as the new DH. Green jammed the ring finger on his left hand during pregame warmups, Scioscia said. He's day to day.
• Dane De La Rosa (right s/c joint irritation) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning for Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday night, with one strikeout, pitching for the second time in three days. De La Rosa will be reevaluated on Wednesday to see how many more rehab outings he'll need -- if any -- before being activated from the disabled list.
• The Angels don't necessarily have a true backup right fielder to Collin Cowgill at the moment. Scioscia indicated Ibanez would be the guy if something happened to Cowgill, and added that Ian Stewart has had some experience there. "We'll have a right fielder out there somehow," Scioscia said.
• The Angels announced their Minor League Players of the Month for April on Tuesday. Starter Cam Bedrosian (three wins, 26 strikeouts and a 1.69 ERA) was named best pitcher, Green (.941 OPS) was best offensive player, and shortstop Eric Stamets (one error in 101 chances) was best defensive player.
