Angels | Garrett Richards to throw Sunday

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 09:03:24 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: Richards probably will miss the first few weeks of the season but should be available for the majority of the season. Owners should monitor his situation during the spring to make sure he is on schedule. Richards could be an option in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts if he does not suffer any setbacks.

Angels | Garrett Richards throws off mound

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 12:20:22 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) threw 50 pitches, including offspeed pitches, from the stretch and windup Thursday, Feb. 26, which marked a big step for him. He will repeat the process Sunday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: Richards continues to be adamant that he'll be ready to go for opening day, but the Angels are likely to play it cautious with him to start the season. Richards appears to be making great progress this spring, though, so there's a chance he could make his debut in mid-April if he avoids a setback. Given the strides made before being injured last year, Richards seems like a fine late middle-rounds gamble.

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 07:59:29 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) will throw 50 pitches in a bullpen session Thursday, Feb. 26. He has been throwing breaking balls on flat ground but not off a mound yet.

Fantasy Tip: Richards broke out in a serious way last season and is worth consideration for your SP3 spot if he begins the season on time.

Angels | Garrett Richards throws 'pen

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 11:02:51 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) threw 40 fastballs in his bullpen session Monday, Feb. 23, and looked "outstanding," according to pitching coach Mike Butcher.

Fantasy Tip: Richards is hoping to be ready by opening day, but the Angels may play it cautious and hold him out until mid- or late-April. Regardless, Richards should be a very nice value in your fantasy baseball drafts after needing knee surgery that ended a Cy Young season in 2014.

Angels | Garrett Richards to throw another 'pen

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 09:47:42 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is set to throw his second bullpen session Friday, Feb. 20, and he'll use all fastballs. He's hoping to throw three bullpen sessions next week, but he remains behind the other starters in camp. Richards remains hopeful that he'll be ready for opening day. The Angels won't need a fifth starter until April 15, though, so there's a realistic chance he'll start on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Richards is progressing fine and should be ready in early April, assuming he doesn't have any setbacks with his knee this spring. Keep an eye on his progress during his spring outings. If everything keeps humming along fine, Richards is a fine gamble in the middle to late rounds of mixed drafts.

Angels | Garrett Richards throws bullpen

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 13:13:20 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) threw 20 pitches in his first bullpen session since his knee surgery last year Monday, Feb. 16, and pitching coach Mike Butcher said Richards "looked good, felt good." Richards only threw fastballs and worked out of the stretch. He's hoping to be ready by opening day, but the Angels will be cautious with him.

Fantasy Tip: Richards was on his way to a possible Cy Young season last year before injuring his knee while covering first base. In this year's fantasy drafts, you can snag him at an injury discount in the middle rounds to shore up your pitching depth. If Richards returns in early April and doesn't have any setbacks with his knee, he could be a steal in fantasy drafts.

Angels | Garrett Richards moving past injury

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 11:15:38 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is scheduled to run with his full body weight for the first time Tuesday, Feb. 10, and he's hoping to throw his first bullpen session when pitchers and catchers report to spring training Feb. 19. Richards said he feels close to 100% physically, and he doesn't see any reason why he can't build on his excellent 2014 season this year. His injury mainly impacts vertical leap and speed, both of which aren't really used by Richards while pitching. The team's trainers see Richards' youth and lack of previous knee injuries as strong indications that he'll make a full recovery.
