Worth noting

Josh Hamilton ran around a lot Friday, while scoring two runs in three plate appearances, and Scioscia believes he's "100 percent running." "No question," Scioscia added. "His times are great down the line, he turned that error [on a hard grounder to first base] into a double, he's moving well in the outfield. The question now is finding his timing at the plate, which he looks very close to."

• Likely Opening Day starter Jered Weaver will make his last spring start in a controlled environment, pitching in a Minor League game Tuesday to make sure he gets up seven times. No. 3 starter Hector Santiago did the same at Salt River Fields on Friday, giving up six runs and throwing 95 pitches in five-plus innings. The Angels aren't sure if C.J. Wilson will do it, too.
