Worth noting

• Dane De La Rosa (right s/c joint irritation) threw a scoreless inning in Salt Lake on Sunday, giving up one walk and no hits. Scioscia said De La Rosa's velocity "wasn't where it was a couple days ago, but still good. It's definitely a step forward." De La Rosa will have at least one more rehab outing.

Sean Burnett, still recovering from August 2013 elbow surgery, threw in yet another extended spring training game in Arizona on Monday, and Scioscia said he "looked good." Burnett could start a rehab assignment after completing another one of those outings.

• Freese took ground balls with one hand on Monday and said his right middle finger, which suffered a non-displaced fracture on Friday, "feels better." He still can't hit or throw.

• Right fielder Calhoun (sprained right ankle) took live batting practice prior to Monday's game, and Scioscia said Calhoun's close to being able to jog on the field.

• Pujols took a Yu Darvish fastball to the front of his helmet on Sunday, but said he felt perfectly fine on Monday and didn't require any concussion tests.
