Worth noting

• Asked if the Angels need to address their starting-pitching depth in light of Mark Mulder's season-ending left Achilles' injury, Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said: "We'll continue to monitor either the trade market or what might be out there. But as we've talked about, we like the group we have, with [Jered Weaver] and C.J. [Wilson], Garrett [Richards], Hector [Santiago] and Tyler [Skaggs], and we do feel like we have depth beyond that."

• Position players -- including Mike Trout -- report for their physical examinations on Tuesday, and could expect a different camp when they take part in their first workout on Wednesday. Unlike last spring, the Angels won't practice on the main fields of the Tempe Diablo Stadium complex. They'll all be in the backfields, taking a lot more swings than usual and emphasizing situational hitting a lot more than before.

• Left-hander Clay Rapada, in competition for one of the Angels' last two bullpen spots, isn't sure if he'd accept an assignment to the Minor Leagues if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster. "That's going to be the decision. To me, at this point in my career, it's going to be a family decision. Are they willing to ship out, come out west, and go through the Minor Leagues on the West Coast?"
