• Left-hander Wade LeBlanc -- called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday -- wasn't listed on the Angels' lineup sheet on Monday, a strong indication that he's in line to take the ball in Thursday's series finale in Seattle. That, however, could hinge on whether or not he's needed out of the bullpen before that.
• Butcher was encouraged by De La Rosa's Sunday outing for Triple-A Salt Lake, when he needed just six pitches -- five of them strikes -- to pitch a 1-2-3 inning that included a strikeout. De La Rosa's fastball velocity sat mostly at 92 mph. It was the 31-year-old right-hander's third outing since returning to his rehab assignment.
