• Angels reliever Fernando Salas, out since June 15 because of inflammation in his right shoulder, wasn't activated off the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, as initially anticipated. Salas said he felt normal soreness from his Tuesday bullpen session, and Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated that he could be activated for Thursday's series opener against the Astros.
• The Angels currently have a six-man rotation because they had to use two starters during Tuesday's doubleheader and won't have an off-day until the All-Star break begins on July 14. Scioscia will trim his rotation back to five early next week, at which point he'll make the long-awaited decision between Hector Santiago and Matt Shoemaker.
