Today's Angels workout turned into an optional one after two delays. Joe Maddon believes the hiccup in testing, with results being slow and, in his situation, testers not showing up, will be "a short-lived situation." He compared today to the equivalent of what would have happened in a rain delay.

When a pitcher gets hit in the head by a line shot as Masahiro Tanaka did Sat., it raises the issue of protection. As ESPN has reported, MLB/the players union have jointly approved 2 safety devices, but pitchers never embraced them. They can opt for any protective headwear, as long as MLB doesn't consider it to interfere with competition or licensing agreements. A Safer Sports Technologies hard-shell cap insert - untested by MLB/the union - is worn by a handful of pitchers.
