Tyler Skaggs (right hamstring strain) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session prior to Sunday's game and felt good coming out of it, pronouncing himself "ready to go." The 22-year-old left-hander will likely start Wednesday's series finale in Chicago, but the Angels haven't decided if it'll be Matt Shoemaker or Hector Santiago staying in the rotation.

Fernando Salas (right shoulder irritation) took part in his first bullpen session since landing on the 15-day disabled list on June 15, throwing 25 pitches and mixing in breaking balls. Salas didn't have any soreness and expects to throw another 'pen on Tuesday, which could lead to him facing hitters shortly thereafter.

• The Angels signed their third-round Draft pick, Ole Miss right-hander Chris Ellis, on Saturday and assigned him to rookie-level Orem. The organization has signed nine of its top 10 picks and 33 of 40 overall. Left-hander Sean Newcomb, taken 15th overall, remains unsigned, but the Angels are confident an agreement will be made before the July 18 deadline.
