Trio of Angels players bound for Arizona
ANAHEIM -- When the Angels depart Southern California for a three-game series in Chicago starting on Friday night, Kendrys Morales, Erick Aybar and Joel Pineiro will head to Arizona to continue to rehab their respective injuries.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that Aybar, who's been sidelined since April 3 with a left oblique strain, will work out through the weekend and possibly be activated on Monday. In three games this year, Aybar is 5-for-12 with three doubles and two RBIs.

Pineiro, out with right shoulder tenderness, is expected to throw a bullpen session and probably a simulated game during his time in Arizona.

"We're debating whether [the simulated game will] be Saturday, Sunday or Monday," Scioscia said, "depending on how his bullpens go."

Scott Kazmir will spend the weekend in Houston and then join the Angels for their three-game series in Arlington, Texas, against the Rangers starting on Monday. Kazmir lasted just 1 2/3 innings in his only start of the season, giving up five runs on five hits on April 3 in Kansas City. Kazmir was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 8 (retroactive to April 4) with lower back soreness.
