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 | Jered Weaver targeted for opener

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 16:00:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is being targeted by the team to start opening day against the Seattle Mariners Monday, April 6. The rest of the rotation is expected to be SPs C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) has been the team's expected opening day starter all along, so this shouldn't come as a big surprise. The Mariners should be even better offensively in 2015 with notable offseason acquisitions, but Weaver should be an acceptable FantasyScore pitching play on opening day.

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 | Matt Shoemaker has lost weight

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 10:56:40 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker has lost roughly 30 pounds this offseason. However, he said he's done the same every winter for seven years, and he typically gains most of it back.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker had an outstanding rookie season with the Halos last year, going 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 136 innings. Can he do it again, though? That remains to be seen, but he's worth taking a chance on in the later rounds of your mixed-league drafts.
