Worth noting

• Alberto Callaspo came into camp 18 to 20 pounds overweight, but Scioscia said the Angels' third baseman has trimmed most of it off and is a "handful" of pounds away from his playing weight. "He was too heavy," Scioscia said. "… He wanted to recoup last offseason. He's trimmed it off, though. I don't think it was anything excessive. He's not far from his playing weight now."

• Non-rehabbing Angels relievers -- guys like Scott Downs, Ernesto Frieri and Kevin Jepsen -- aren't expected to start getting into games until the first week of March. The only non-rehabbing, non-roster reliever who hasn't appeared in a game is Brandon Sisk, who was obtained from the Royals for Ervin Santana. He could appear in a game as soon as Wednesday.

• Sean Burnett (stiff lower back) and Ryan Madson (Tommy John surgery) each threw off flat ground again on Tuesday, representing back-to-back days for both. Scioscia said Burnett will get on a mound "soon," but not within the next couple of days because he still needs to progress with his long-tossing.

• The Angels assigned veteran reliever Tony Pena to Minor League camp before Tuesday's game. Pena underwent Tommy John surgery in August 2011, signed with the Angels in August 2012 and made two appearances in rookie ball, but felt some pain while trying to pitch in winter ball and shut it down. The 31-year-old right-hander has been throwing from 75 feet and expects to get back on the mound in two to three weeks.
