• Third baseman Alberto Callaspo has committed four errors -- three of them throwing -- in the previous three games entering Wednesday, but manager Mike Scioscia is not worried because of Callaspo's track record at the position.

"Every player, from time to time, is going to have some little glitches -- Alberto has been hit with his this week," Scioscia said. "I think it's just a little slump and he'll be back where he needs to be."

• It was no secret the Angels were short on depth, but when Brendan Harris started Tuesday's game at first base and Howie Kendrick played the eighth inning in left field, the lack of depth was obvious.

"I think we massaged every move we could last night," Scioscia said. "You'd like a little more versatility on the bench."

Scioscia acknowledged that the Angels are looking at options and will likely add some depth to their bench once the pitching staff "settles a bit."
