• More than 1,700 at-risk students (fourth through eighth grade) were invited to Monday's game as part of the Angels' sixth annual Orange County Gang Reduction and Intervention Partnership. The students, making up the largest turnout in the event's history, watched early batting practice and received talks from Scioscia and Hamilton as a reward for improved behavior and staying out of gangs. Retired K-9 Bruno, who was shot on duty while protecting police and probation officers on March 20, made an appearance.
• Outfielder Collin Cowgill, batting .301/.398/.409 on the season, sat on Monday against an opposing left-hander because he's experiencing some tightness in his hip flexor.
"He'll be available if we need it," Scioscia said, "but we're just trying to keep him off his legs as much as we can."
• Grant Green got some work at first base with infield coach Alfredo Griffin prior to Monday's game. Green is most comfortable at second base but can also play shortstop, third base and left field. The Angels want him to get accustomed to first base in case of an emergency, but Griffin doesn't want to overload him with too much, because he's still getting acclimated to other positions.
• Calhoun went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs and Freese went 1-for-4 with a homer during a rehab game for Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. Calhoun has played in four rehab games and Freese has played in three. Both could be activated from the disabled list by Wednesday.
