They've also struggled against the Angels recently, with the Halos winning 16 of the past 23 meetings between the two clubs. ... Ten of Matt Kemp's 11 home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers. Angels: Scioscia taking care with Aybar
Shortstop Erick Aybar, who damaged the meniscus in his left knee last Monday, will be reevaluated on Tuesday to see if a retroactive trip to the disabled list is needed.
"We should know on Tuesday which direction it's going," manager Mike Scioscia said. "A player, if he's at a heightened sense of risk, you're not going to play him. If he's not ready, he's not ready. It doesn't matter if it's Erick Aybar or anybody else. When he's ready, he'll go out and play."Worth noting
The Dodgers are 24-18 with Jamey Carroll in the starting lineup this year. ... In the series history between the two clubs, the Angels are 24-13 at home against the Dodgers and 44-33 overall. ... The Angels have used 53 lineups in their first 71 games.
