• The Angels' June 22 home game against the Rangers has been moved to a 5 p.m. PT start time, in order to be telecast on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. The Angels are off the following day, then wrap up their homestand with a three-game series against the Twins.
• C.J. Wilson took the mound feeling under the weather on Tuesday, ultimately giving up five runs in the third inning, walking a season-high five batters and exiting after having recorded only eight outs.
The Angels could've used Matt Shoemaker in his spot, and pushed Wilson back to Saturday, but Scioscia said "it was definitely worth it to see if [Wilson] could get to a certain point in the game, and he felt strong enough to do that."
• Raul Ibanez, batting .144/.255/.266 on the season, batted seventh on Wednesday, the lowest he's batted against an opposing right-hander -- in this case Jarred Cosart -- all season.
Asked about Ibanez, Scioscia said: "The talent is still there. He just hasn't found the timing, so you want to keep giving him those opportunities."
For now, he'll get those opportunities lower in the lineup.
