KANSAS CITY -- Reliever Kevin Jepsen, recovering from a right shoulder strain, had another positive outing for Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday and could be on the verge of rejoining the Angels' bullpen.

"His velocity was good," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He threw his one inning and showed some good secondary pitches, too. He'll be evaluated [Saturday] and we'll see how he came out of it."

Jepsen has now had three rehab outings. He had two saves and 18 holds for the Angels last year.
