• Angels reliever Fernando Salas (right shoulder inflammation) threw his second bullpen session in three days on Tuesday and came out of it feeling good. If Salas bounces back normally on Wednesday, there's a good chance he'll be activated off the disabled list.
• Michael Kohn was sent back to Triple-A three days after being called up, without having pitched in a game. The 28-year-old right-hander pitched 9 1/3 scoreless innings in Triple-A, but the Angels currently need more length out of their relievers, and Scioscia said Kohn is "not quite the finished product he can be." Walks are still a concern.
• Hector Santiago was available out of the bullpen for Tuesday's doubleheader, an indication that the 26-year-old left-hander will be backed up to start Saturday, putting him on six days' rest. That would put Matt Shoemaker in line to start Thursday on five days' rest, with C.J. Wilson to start Friday on the standard four days' rest. The probables aren't official yet, and Santiago ultimately wasn't needed in relief.
• After Tuesday's doubleheader sweep, the Angels optioned right-handed reliever David Carpenter back to Triple-A Salt Lake in order to activate Wednesday's starter, Tyler Skaggs, off the disabled list. Carpenter, 26, pitched three scoreless innings in his only appearance on Friday.
