• Left-handed reliever Sean Burnett did not pitch Monday or Tuesday because of tightness in his left forearm. Scioscia did not have a prediction on when Burnett would again be available to throw in a game -- he did not rule out Wednesday night -- but did say Burnett is feeling better.
"He feels a lot better," Scioscia said. "I think surprisingly much further ahead than you might anticipate after having the exam and everything. He's going to go out a play a little bit of catch."
• Although the Angels must remove Tommy Hanson from the bereavement list by Monday, it remains to be seen when he will step back into the rotation.
"It's been a very emotional week for Tommy, and naturally we'll touch base," Scioscia said. "There's a lot of things we are going to consider."
Hanson left the team on Monday because of a death in his family.
