Worth noting

• Jered Weaver, nursing biceps tendinitis, threw from about 90 feet once again on Sunday morning and may throw what Angels manager Mike Scioscia called a "touch-and-feel" bullpen session on Monday. If he comes out of that fine, he could start Wednesday. But the Angels won't rush him.

"We're not fitting in a schedule for Weave to follow of when he has to pitch," Scioscia said. "We're going to pitch him when he's ready. So, it's going to go according to how he feels. When he's ready to pitch, we'll put him in there."

• One day after taking a foul ball to the facemask while calling balls and strikes, Jeff Kellogg was absent from Sunday's game, with Angel Campos joining the umpiring crew and filling in at second base. Kellogg exited Saturday's game in the second inning, shortly after being hit by Torii Hunter's foul ball, and nursed a pretty bad headache while being checked on in the Angel Stadium umpire's room throughout the night. He was said to be feeling better on Sunday.
