Angels infielder Tommy La Stella, the leading All-Star game vote-getter among American League second basemen, was scratched from Friday’s lineup because of left forearm tightness. La Stella’s .304 average and .892 OPS are second on the team. … With outfielder Justin Upton likely to rejoin the Angels in the next week, a roster crunch looms. The Angels will have to decide whether to designate for assignment infielder Wilfredo Tovar or one of outfielders Cesar Puello and Brian Goodwin to make room for Upton on the 40-man roster. Meyer, who returned to the Angels on a minor league deal this season, is no longer throwing.
