Panik was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to possible concussion symptoms.

Analysis: Panik is still feeling the effects of being hit in the head by a pitch from Tampa Bay's Matt Moore on June 18.

Manager Bruce Bochy said the team should know by Wednesday whether Panik will require a stint on the concussion DL.

Pujols continued his hot stretch with two hits - including an RBI single - Tuesday against Houston.

Lincecum struck out seven in 4 1/3 innings Tuesday against Houston, but was reached for five runs and walked four in the Angels' 7-1 loss.

Analysis: After throwing six innings of one-run ball to win his Angels' debut on June 18, Lincecum has been lit up for nine runs and 15 hits while failing to go beyond 4 1/3 innings in his two subsequent starts. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner isn't a recommended play at the moment.

6/29/2016 Erik Johnson, SD, P
It was another rough outing Tuesday for Johnson, who allowed four runs and seven hits - including two homers - over five innings in a loss to Baltimore.
