Worth noting

• Injured outfielder Collin Cowgill (broken nose, thumb) played a rehab game Friday for Triple-A Salt Lake and will play another one Saturday, Scioscia said. Scioscia said Cowgill's return is "on the horizon."

"We'll see every day where he is, but he shouldn't be that far away," Scioscia said.

• Shuck, who started Friday's game in left field, was optioned to Salt Lake to make room for Saturday starter Wilson (sprained right ankle), who was activated from the DL.

• The Angels claimed infielder Ryan Wheeler off outright waivers from Colorado and assigned him to Salt Lake. They designated right-hander David Carpenter for assignment in a corresponding move.

• When Scioscia arrived at Tropicana Field on Saturday, his office was filled with Joe Maddon Mr. Potato Head dolls -- Saturday's giveaway at The Trop, in honor of the Rays skipper.

"I went in there, and I had just asked him for one Potato Head, you know, to see what it was, and it looked like it was a Potato Head farm in my office," Scioscia said. "They were everywhere."

Scioscia used the likenesses of his old co-coach with the Angels for soft toss, smashing the Maddon Potato Heads with a fungo bat.
