Worth noting

• C.J. Wilson made his last spring start in a game against the Giants' Triple-A affiliate on Thursday, giving up three runs on eight hits while walking none, striking out seven and getting a few plate appearances in 6 1/3 innings. Wilson threw 89 pitches (58 strikes) and lines up make his regular-season debut against the Reds on Wednesday. The lefty took a comebacker off his calf, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia said it's nothing serious.

• Albert Pujols is "up for" playing first base in all three Freeway Series exhibition games against the Dodgers, Scioscia said. The Angels' skipper said Pujols' mobility at first base had been contingent on the plantar fasciitis on his left foot, not his surgically repaired right knee, and the slugger has all but moved past that.

• Reliever Chad Cordero's season will begin at Class A Inland Empire. The 31-year-old right-hander, who racked up 113 saves with the Nationals from 2005-07 but hasn't pitched in almost two years, was hit-and-miss in Cactus League play, giving up 12 runs in 5 2/3 innings.
