Hunter, Wells to return to face Dodgers
ANAHEIM -- A few days after outfielders Torii Hunter and Vernon Wells suffered injuries in Spring Training, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said both intend to play in Monday's exhibition against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

"Both seemed to feel pretty good and have the intention of playing tomorrow," Scioscia said Sunday, before the Angels played an exhibition game against the Padres at Angel Stadium.

Hunter and Wells both worked out before Sunday's game, feeling no discomfort.

Hunter aggravated his quad and was taken out of Thursday's game after the third inning, while Wells injured his left hamstring running to first base in Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Scioscia is also confident in the eventual return of first baseman Kendrys Morales, whose ankle continues to heal from surgery last season.

Morales will be evaluated Monday, hoping to begin baseball activity thereafter.

Morales began wearing orthotic inserts last week in both of his shoes to help with the soreness in his feet.

"Him being off it was the big thing and the inserts will help," Scioscia said. "He feels good, though."

Morales has not appeared in a Spring Training game and will open the season on the disabled list.
