Worth noting

• Vernon Wells will have his surgically repaired right thumb evaluated in Anaheim on Friday morning, and if all checks out OK, he'll begin a rehab assignment -- probably for about two weeks -- with Triple-A Salt Lake.

• Chris Iannetta (right forearm strain) needs one more day of throwing before going out on his rehab assignment in Triple-A, which could begin Friday.

• Torii Hunter was out of the Angels' lineup on Thursday, but manager Mike Scioscia said it was only a planned day off and had nothing to do with a right groin injury that forced him out of the starting lineup on Saturday and Sunday.

• Mike Trout hit a solo homer in the sixth inning of Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Tigers, giving him 14 on the year and running his streak of runs scored to 11 straight games. The Angels record for consecutive games with a run is 13, done by Jim Edmonds in 1995.
