• Tommy Hanson pitched five innings in his start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits. There is no timetable for how long he will be in Salt Lake. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Hanson needs to "find his game."

Kole Calhoun is starting Friday night's game at first base. Although first base is not his primary position, Calhoun said it isn't something he opposes.

"It's a secondary position, but it's still something I take pride in," Calhoun said. "Days I don't start I try to get a little work in there, or when there is early BP I'll try to get some work in there."
