Angels | Garrett Richards entering rotation

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards will enter the rotation with SP Joe Blanton being moved to the bullpen. Richards will make the start against the Oakland Athletics Saturday, July 27. Blanton has 13 losses and an ERA of 5.66 in 20 starts this year, and he leads the majors in hits allowed (157) and homers allowed (24).

Fantasy Tip: Richards deserves to be owned in all AL-only leagues and deep enough mixed leagues if you're looking for a pitching spark. How long he'll remain in the rotation is unknown, though, with Jason Vargas (armpit) working his way back. If Richards pitches well enough, though, it might be hard for the Halos to banish him back to the bullpen.
