Angels | Halos undecided on Garrett Richards

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 10:22:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) allowed five runs on seven hits while walking four in six innings for Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14, in what was believed to be his final rehab start. However, the Angels will meet with Richards Wednesday, April 15, before deciding if he'll make his season debut against the Houston Astros Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Holding Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) out for his first start at FantasyScore is probably the safe move, especially when looking at his numbers in his final rehab start. However, the matchup against the strikeout-prone Astros is tempting, if he winds up starting Sunday.

Angels | Garrett Richards to debut Sunday?

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:32:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is scheduled to make his season debut against the Houston Astros Sunday, April 19, if everything goes well with his final rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14. That would push SP Matt Shoemaker to six days of rest for Monday, April 20, and SP Hector Santiago to five days of rest for Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) looked good all spring and hasn't had any setbacks after having surgery on his knee last year. Despite making his first start Sunday, Richards will be attractive to FantasyScore users against an Astros squad that strikes out in bunches and hasn't gotten it going offensively in 2015 yet.

Angels | Garrett Richards may return soon

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:58:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) could join the team after his rehab start with Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could rejoin the starting rotation at some point next week if he does not have any setbacks. He likely will be on a pitch count initially, so owners on FantasyScore may want to see how he does in a start or two before considering him.

Angels | Garrett Richards makes rehab outing

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 15:29:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) allowed four hits and two runs while walking three and striking out 12 in seven innings in a minor league intrasquad game Thursday, April 9. He's likely to make his next rehab start at Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is nearing his return to the major leagues after a stellar 2014 season that was cut short by an ugly knee injury. Richards looked great all spring and hasn't had any setbacks. It's safe to say that he'll be a solid FantasyScore option immediately when he returns.

Angels | Garrett Richards to rehab Thursday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 22:11:41 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) will work in an extended spring training game Thursday, April 9, as he continues his rehab from a knee injury suffered last August.

Fantasy Tip: Richards remains on target to return, but FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him at $7,100 (or 14.2% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full start or two without any setbacks.

Angels | Garrett Richards may be close

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 12:15:59 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) could begin a rehab assignment next week and may need only one rehab start before returning to the team.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Richards ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) will be able to return to the starting rotation in a few weeks. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Richards when he returns, but they may want to lower expectations since he is coming off the injury.

Angels | Garrett Richards to throw Thursday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:48:01 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is scheduled to throw 100 pitches in a spring training game Thursday, April 9. Richards is feeling that he is very close to a return.

Fantasy Tip: Richards' ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) fantasy stock rose during spring training when he looked impressive as he comes back from knee surgery last year. He should be ready to rejoin the rotation in mid-April, and he'll be a popular FantasyScore option if he can return to his 2014 form.

Angels | Halos could use four-man rotation

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 11:37:25 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are expected to begin the regular season with a four-man starting rotation and an eight-man bullpen, according to manager Mike Scioscia. SPs Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago are expected to start the first four games of the season. The Angels will not need a fifth starter until April 14, but injured SP Garrett Richards (knee) is unlikely to be available by then.

Fantasy Tip: This means that SPs Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano will likely begin the year in the minors but one of them could be recalled to make the start April 14. Neither pitcher has much value in universal leagues, although Heaney has the bigger upside and could be worthy of consideration in the later rounds of AL-only drafts.

Angels | Garrett Richards pitching Saturday

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:03:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) will pitch a minor league game Saturday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: The only significance of starting a minor league game is it means Richards won't start against any major league hitters until he is recalled. He is expected to return sometime in late April, and has progresses nicely from a serious knee injury. He posted high-end numbers last season before the injury and is a solid target in the middle rounds of drafts. His upside has the potential to be a huge boost to your fake rotation, and he'll likely only miss a handful of starts.

Angels | Halos being cautious with Garrett Richards

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:43:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) will likely be treated with extra caution by the Angels, and he might not return until late April.

Fantasy Tip: Richards has shown excellent progress this spring after a gruesome knee injury in 2014. Before his injury last season, he was performing at Cy Young levels. There isn't any reason to believe he won't return to a similar level in 2015, but he'll first miss a handful of starts. Richards' potential outweighs any risk of re-injury, and he's a nice candidate for your rotation in the middle rounds of drafts.
