Worth noting

• In addition to LeBlanc, the Angels recalled right-handed reliever Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. Bedrosian, 22, has a 1.30 ERA with 16.6 strikeouts per nine innings in 39 appearances in the Minors and a 7.59 ERA in 10 appearances in the Majors.

• Asked if he had any concerns about Albert Pujols, 34, taking part in the five-game exhibition All-Star Series in Japan in November, Scioscia said, "I have no reservations [when it comes to] what guys do after the season. If he wants to go, fine."
