Freese rests foot blister; De La Rosa sidelined

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels third baseman David Freese was held out Sunday with a blood blister on the bottom of his foot. Freese didn't play Saturday either, though that was a scheduled day off, manager Mike Scioscia said.

"He should be good to go [Monday]," Scioscia said. "It was sore yesterday but much better today. We'll give him one more day to get over it."

As for reliever Dane De La Rosa, who was scheduled to pitch Sunday before he was diagnosed with a forearm strain on Friday, Scioscia said there is no timetable for the big right-hander.

"He feels better," Scioscia said. "There's no projection when he's going to pick up a baseball, but he does definitely feel much better. Calming it down is the first course of action."
