Worth noting

Mike Trout spent most of Monday morning in full uniform on the main field at Tempe Diablo Stadium, doing a promotion with Major League Baseball that's very similar to the one he was featured in last season, with Andrew McCutchen, Prince Fielder, Jose Bautista and several others. "It was fun," Trout said. "I like doing it."

• Corner infielder Ian Stewart was a late scratch from Monday's game against the D-backs at Salt River Fields. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he was "messing around with his daughter and got hit in the nose." Stewart was checked on by Angels doctors.

• Only two regulars -- right fielder Kole Calhoun and platooning catcher Chris Iannetta -- were in Monday's starting lineup. The rest of the everyday players -- minus Josh Hamilton, who's off crutches but still recovering from a strained left calf -- took part in an intrasquad scrimmage at Tempe Diablo Stadium in the morning.
