Cliff Pennington is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment Wednesday night.

Pennington is working his way back from a hamstring injury and will likely only need a few games before returning to the Angels. Johnny Giavotella has been playing especially well in Pennington's absence so it will be interesting to see how this position battle plays out.

C.J. Wilson is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment Wednesday night.

Wilson will need to work his pitch count up but this is certainly great news for him on a personal level. Fantasy owners should use caution with Wilson seeing as he is coming off an injury but he was decent in 2015, going 8-8 with a 3.89 ERA while striking out 110 over 132 innings.

Angels have recalled third basemen Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake City.

Cowart was hitting .303 with 24 runs, two home runs, 27 RBI and three stolen bases over 39 games for Triple-A Salt Lake this season which likely earned him his promotion. He appeared in 34 games last season for the Angels but struggling, hitting just .174 with eight runs, one home run, four RBI and one stolen base.

Angels have designated LHP Lucas Luetge for assignment.

Luetge was having a solid season for Triple-A Salt Lake, going 0-1 with a 2.33 ERA over 15 games out of the bullpen and has 111 games of major league experience so it seems unlikely that this lefty reliever will be on the market for long.

Mets are optimistic that Wilmer Flores can come off the disabled list when first eligible on Friday.

Flores is dealing with a hamstring injury that has him on the disabled list but while he is likely going to return on Friday it will be as the Mets utility man still which limits his fantasy value.
