ARLINGTON -- Angels reliever Mike Morin, on the shelf since Aug. 4 with a laceration in his left foot, accomplished all he needed to during a rehab outing for Class A Inland Empire on Thursday night. The 23-year-old fielded a drag bunt, threw 11 pitches, gave up one hit and struck out a couple batters in his lone inning of work, reportedly hitting 96 mph on the radar gun.

Morin is slated to be activated off the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

"It truly is different, whether if it was Inland Empire with 300 people there, the adrenaline was still going," Morin said. "It's a lot different from a bullpen. I'm glad I did that. It kind of eased my mind a little bit."
