Worth noting

• LaTroy Hawkins (right pinkie) hurled a clean inning for Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, striking out a batter and throwing nine pitches (seven strikes). He'll pitch there again on Thursday, with the hope of joining the Angels for their weekend Interleague series against the Rockies.

• Scioscia doesn't believe starter Jered Weaver (lower back strain) will have to go on a rehab assignment, but catcher Chris Iannetta (right wrist surgery) will.

• The Angels will host their final visit for the Adopt-A-School program on Wednesday, when outfielder Kole Calhoun and broadcaster Jose Tolentino visit Lowell Elementary in Santa Ana, Calif., at 10:15 a.m. PT.

• Two former Angels passed away recently. Pitcher Pedro Borbon, who spent one of his 12 big league seasons with the then-California Angels, lost his battle with cancer at age 65 on Monday. Former scout Hal Keller, 84, died in his sleep on Tuesday.

• On Monday night, Angels outfielder Mike Trout became the youngest player in franchise history to record four hits in a game (at 20 years, 302 days old), according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The previous youngest was Jay Johnstone, who did it in 1966 at 20 years and 306 days old.
