• Hank Conger made a rare start against an opposing lefty on Tuesday because manager Mike Scioscia liked the way he's been working with Hector Santiago, saying: "Even though it's a small sample, we want to see if it's something that might help Hector."
• After the Thursday off-day, Scioscia is planning to keep the rotation order the same, having C.J. Wilson, Garrett Richards and Matt Shoemaker start the three games in Atlanta, respectively. But that can change based on whether the Angels use Shoemaker out of the bullpen before then, and the Angels can push one of their starters back if needed.
• After umpires overturned an initial Mike Trout home run due to fan interference, the yellow line above the right-field scoreboard was repainted prior to Tuesday's game. Scioscia reiterated Tuesday that he doesn't believe there was conclusive evidence to overturn the home run, and even if there was, the Angels' manager believed Trout should've been standing on third base, not second.
