• Angels reliever Dane De La Rosa (right s/c joint irritation) has a 6.00 ERA in six one-inning appearances since rejoining his rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake. De La Rosa gave up a run on two hits and a walk Saturday, but Scioscia said "the angle's reappearing" in his pitches and "it looks like the velocity is getting more consistent."
• Hitting coach Don Baylor (fractured right femur) watched early batting practice several times during the Angels' recent homestand, and Scioscia expects him to be around even more when the team returns Friday, saying, "He's getting better. In terms of the full reins of what he was doing before, we'll see where he is in the next couple weeks."
