Worth noting

• There's still no timetable for Angels starter Tyler Skaggs, who's currently on the disabled list with a strain in his left forearm. Asked about where he's at, manager Mike Scioscia said: "It's a process, just to see where it is, so we'll let it calm down first."

• Utility man Grant Green, sidelined with a lumbar strain since July 21, is rehabbing in Arizona and Scioscia said he's "just at the baby steps of baseball activities," merely taking swings off a tee at this point.

• Monday's Freeway Series opener was the second-most-watched Angels telecast ever on FOX Sports West, a figure that was partly inflated by the fact many Dodgers fans are still unable to watch the team's SportsNet LA broadcast. The most-watched Angels game on FOX Sports West occurred on June 22, 1998, also against the Dodgers.

• Right-hander David Carpenter, who was designated for assignment on Saturday, cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake. The 26-year-old threw three scoreless innings in his lone appearance with the Angels this season and has a 2.25 ERA in 36 Minor League appearances.
