Angels activate Garrett Richards from 15-day DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:16 am ET) The Angels activated pitcher Garrett Richards from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, per the league's transactions page.

Richards missed the beginning of the regular season as he continued to work his way back from knee surgery, but he's ready to make his debut in Sunday's season finale against the Astros in Houston. He excelled in his first full season as a starter, going 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA and 164:51 K:BB ratio in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.


Report: Angels' Garrett Richards appears in line to start Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) With Matt Shoemaker scheduled to start Monday and Hector Santiago on Tuesday, it appears as if Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be in line to start Sunday against the Astros, reports MLB.com.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, threw a bullpen session on Friday after a Triple-A rehab start on Tuesday. After his session, Richards said he's been able to accomplish every bench mark that was required of him during his rehab.

Richards went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.


Angels P Garrett Richards: I hit all my bench marks to return


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards said he's been able to accomplish every bench mark that was required of him during his rehab from knee surgery, reports MLB.com.

"I've done everything necessary," he said. "I don't I have any more check marks to hit."

Scioscia: Angels RHP Richards not set for Sunday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Word to those anticipating the 2015 debut Sunday for Angels right-hander Garrett Richards: Not so fast.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, did not exactly quell concerns in his rehab start Tuesday. He allowed five earned runs on seven hits in five innings for Triple-A Salt Lake. He did strike out five, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia is not ready to announce that Richards will start Sunday against the host Astros.

Scioscia told the Orange County Register that Richards will be evaluated in Houston before getting the nod. The hope is that he can pick up where he left off last year, when he emerged as an ace by winning 13 of 17 decisions, fanning 164 in 168 2/3 innings and compiling a sparkling 2.61 ERA.

"Stuff looked good," Scioscia told MLB.com about Richards' outing. "I think his command maybe wasn't as crisp at some points, but he moved well. I think he felt good. We'll evaluate him ... and see what the next step will be. ... It took him a lot of work to get through the five innings, 90-plus pitches. But his stamina was there."

Richards could return from the 15-day disabled list Sunday at Houston, barring any setbacks.

"This far along, I know in my heart that my leg is ready to go,” Richard said, per The Orange County Register. “Mentally is another thing. That’s something I’ll overcome with time.

“I don't think I need anymore rehab starts. I'm ready to go.”

The Angels are expected to open the season with a four-man rotation that will included Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago.

Starter Garrett Richards is recovering from knee surgery.

"One of the things is, a lot of guys who are playing well, it might come down to what the fit is on the team. So there's a couple different ways," Scioscia said.

Angels' Garrett Richards tosses five scoreless in minor league game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was able to throw five scoreless innings Saturday in a Triple-A outing as a part of his rehab from left-knee surgery. Richards was happy to get back to normal activities, according to the L.A. Times.

"When you're sidelined for so long, getting back to normalcy is really comforting, it's reassuring mentally for me," Richards said.

He gave up just one hit with five strikeouts in the outing.

"When you get hurt, you initially have these questions running through your head. 'Am I going to be the same? How is this thing going to respond? Where am I going to be in my career?' But everything is really clicking. My leg is getting stronger every week."

Rehab continues to progress slow and hopes to be ready by mid-April.

Garrett Richards reaches 40-pitch mark for Angels


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards continued to progress in his comeback from knee surgery. 

On Friday, Richards threw a 40-pitche bullpen session, his heaviest workload yet, combined with fielding practice. 

Richards will likely pitch in a simulated game on Wednesday, meaning he won't appear in an actual game until March 23 at the earliest. 

Richards seemed to accept the fact that he's likely to start the season on the disabled list. 

"I think it would be immature on my part to just not take into consideration that I just had surgery," Richards told MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez. "I have to go about my day-to-day stuff in a mature, controlled way. That involves pushing myself, but not pushing it to the absolute limit."

"It's hard," he added. "I have to pump the breaks. I'm ready to play, but I'm not ready to get out there and start testing it yet. It's going to come, though. It'll come soon."
