Worth noting

• The Angels have signed veteran right-hander Tony Pena to a Minor League contract. Pena, 30, posted a 4.43 ERA while compiling 313 appearances (three starts) for the D-backs and White Sox from 2006-11. Pena was signed to pitch for Triple-A Salt Lake, but is rehabbing in Arizona from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to pitch for roughly 10 more days.

• The Angels, along with AM 830 and the Angels Baseball Foundation, will host their third cooking challenge on Thursday. Trumbo, Ernesto Frieri, Peter Bourjos, Kevin Jepsen and LaTroy Hawkins will compete, getting matched up with local chefs in hopes of winning the approval of judges. Former players Troy Percival and Rod Carew will serve as "special guests." The event will be held at the ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. PT. Tickets can be purchased at am830.net.

• The Angels' wives are partnering with the OC Animal Care Center of Orange, Calif., to host the fifth Angels for Animals night at Angel Stadium on Friday. From 5 p.m. PT through the second inning, Angels wives will sell $40 mystery bags containing a baseball signed by an Angels player or coach, as well as $5 raffle tickets to win other autographed items. Proceeds will go towards the Animal Care Center and Angels Baseball Foundation. Fans will also have a chance to meet many of the animals up for adoption at the Animal Care Center.

• Following Saturday's game coverage, FOX Sports West will do a special re-airing of Game 7 of the 2002 World Series, as part of the Angels' celebration of the 10th anniversary of that championship team.
