Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim managed Mike Scioscia said Sunday, Feb. 19, that the competition for the fifth starter spot in the rotation is an "open competition." SP Jerome Williams, who is out of options, has been considered the odds-on favorite for the job. However, SP Garrett Richards is also in the mix, along with SPs Trevor Bell, Eric Hurley, Brad Mills and Matt Shoemaker. "There's hopefully going to be a depth chart that's going to be very tangible when we get to the end of spring training," Scioscia said. "Right now, there's no sense ranking them, because you never know what spring training brings."
