Worth noting

• With each of their top three affiliates headed to the Minor League playoffs, the Angels aren't expected to call up any players on Sunday, the first day rosters expand.

• Sunday is also the deadline for teams who are eligible for the playoffs to add players. As of pregame Friday, a source said there was a "very high percentage likelihood" that starter Jason Vargas, a free agent at season's end, would remain with the Angels for the rest of the season.

• Asked how he would use center fielder Peter Bourjos in the three-game Interleague series against the Brewers, Scioscia said he'd "try to match him up a little bit and get him in there when he can play, and see if he can get comfortable in the batter's box." Bourjos is 3-for-36 since returning from the disabled list.

• The pendulum behind the plate has swung back in the direction of Hank Conger, who started Friday for the fifth time in six games.

"He's doing a good job, first and foremost, behind the plate," Scioscia said. "And the way he's contributing from the left side, he's winning playing time. But they [Conger and Chris Iannetta] both bring a lot."
