Rangers waiting on Angels' weekend rotation
ARLINGTON -- The Angels still have not made an official decision on their rotation for the three-game series with the Rangers. Dan Haren starts on Friday night, but the club is undecided on Saturday and Sunday.

The question is if manager Mike Scioscia will pitch Ervin Santana and Jered Weaver on Saturday and Sunday with three days' rest. Santana pitched Tuesday against the White Sox, and Weaver pitched Wednesday.

If they go on three days' rest, Santana would pitch Saturday and Weaver would pitch Sunday. Neither has pitched on three days' rest before, but Scioscia said it would be a one-time move. If not, Santana would pitch Sunday and Weaver would miss the series. Joel Pineiro would likely start on Saturday.

"I'm not really worried about what they're doing with their rotation," second baseman Ian Kinsler said. "I say it over and over again, we're not worried about the Angels. We're worried about ourselves. We can't control anything they do. If we want to bring a guy back on two days' rest or three days' rest or five days' rest, I don't care."
