A's two-time All-Star reliever Andrew Bailey is scheduled to make his second Minor League rehab appearance Monday for Sacramento. Bailey, recovering from a forearm injury that has kept him out all season, made his first rehab outing Friday, tossing one inning in Sacramento. He threw 16 pitches and struck out one batter. Bailey hopes to return soon to the A's bullpen. Grant Balfour's 14 2/3 inning scoreless streak was snapped Sunday, when he gave up a two-run home run to Nate Schierholtz in the eighth. It tied the longest scoreless streak of Balfour's career. Angels: Kazmir ready for rehab start
After a rough few months, Scott Kazmir is finally ready to get back into the swing of things. On Tuesday, the Angels' hurler will make his first rehab start since being placed on the DL April 8 with soreness in his lower back. "I'm feeling good, I have made a lot of strides," Kazmir said. "To be able to get in competition and work on stuff is really important. I am making progress." Worth noting
The A's have taken three of five games against the Angels this season, but they dropped two of three in Anaheim.
