Some pregame notes …

  • The Angels haven’t made a formal announcement on their Tuesday starter yet, but plan on it being Garrett Richards.
  • Chris Iannetta (right forearm strain) threw to bases today. Mike Scioscia said he “definitely took a step forward” but will have to repeat the workout before seeing when he’s ready to go out there and feel comfortable enough for a rehab assignment. “He had a good workout today, he’s just not quite where he needs to be.”
  • Vernon Wells (thumb surgery) worked out again today and could get on a rehab assignment, probably 7-10 games, by this weekend.
  • And this could be a very big week with regards to the Angels’ pursuit of a starting pitcher.
