Worth noting

• Angels reliever Fernando Salas (right shoulder inflammation) was examined by team doctors on Monday but did not require an MRI. Manager Mike Scioscia said "there are no tests that are pending, so it's just something that's going to calm down."

• Starter Tyler Skaggs (right hamstring strain) is slated to throw a simulated game at Progressive Field on Tuesday and looks on track to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

• The Angels face four consecutive right-handed starters in Cleveland, but the right-handed-hitting C.J. Cron could get some starts in favor of the left-handed-hitting Raul Ibanez. "We'll see how things roll," Scioscia said. "We've got to get Raul and C.J. going. These guys were sitting for a while in Atlanta."
