Thursday tidbits

2/24/2011

• Catching prospect Anel De Los Santos injured his thumb during a drill Wednesday and is scheduled to undergo X-rays Thursday. It's the first appreciable injury of camp nearly two weeks in. De Los Santos, 21, was out until July 17 last year, then batted .225 in 20 games for Double-A Arkansas.

• The Angels will use Trevor Bell to start Saturday's Cactus League opener against Hiroki Kuroda and the Dodgers. Barring an injury to one of the Angels' pitchers, Bell likely will start the season in the rotation at Triple-A Salt Lake.

• The Angels signed catcher Cole Armstrong, but he will report to the minor-league spring complex. Armstrong, a native of British Columbia, batted .276 at Double-A for the Chicago White Sox last year.
