• Lefty reliever Sean Burnett (left elbow surgery) has pitched in three rehab games for Double-A Arkansas and Angels manager Mike Scioscia said "he's getting close." Burnett pitched a scoreless outing on Thursday, allowing two baserunners and striking out three, and Scioscia said Burnett is "more comfortable with his stuff." It's still unclear how many more rehab outings he would need.
• Jimenez defeated Rays ace David Price in the annual cow-milking contest at Angel Stadium. Jimenez got tips from a couple of experts as he approached the two cows behind home plate and didn't lose his composure when one started to move around, scaring off the teammates who came to watch. For that, he received a giant bucket for a trophy.
• Calhoun (sprained right ankle) went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored while leading off and playing right field in his first rehab game for Triple-A Salt Lake. Calhoun, who came out of the game after five innings, is on track to return early next week.
