Player Notes
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he's expecting Garrett Richards (knee) to rejoin the rotation 2-3 weeks into the season.

Advice: The club had previously not dismissed the possibility of Richards being ready by Opening Day, but they've now conceded that he'll begin the season on the disabled list. His recovery from patella tendon surgery is going well, though, as he's throwing bullpen sessions and will do simulated pitchers' fielding practice on Sunday. Richards is coming off a breakout 2014 campaign that included a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164/51 K/BB ratio over 168 2/3 innings.

Garrett Richards (knee) tossed a successful 50-pitch bullpen session Thursday in Angels camp.

Advice: It was his first time throwing out of the windup since he tore his left patellar tendon last August at Fenway Park. Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher watched Thursday's workout and said Richards "did well." The right-hander is still aiming to make his 2015 debut in the first week of the regular season, but mid-April seems more realistic.

Garrett Richards (knee) said on Wednesday that he still thinks being ready for Opening Day is "very very possible."

Advice: Richards, who is coming back from surgery to repair a torn left patellar tendon, is scheduled for his fourth bullpen session on Thursday and will go out of the windup for the first time. His arm feels fine, but he's still about 10 days away from fielding drills. It's good for Richards to have a lofty goal to work toward, but the Angels believe he likely won't be ready until two or three weeks into the season.

Garrett Richards (knee) is about 10 days away from being cleared for fielding drills.

Advice: Richards has completed three bullpen sessions since his arrival at Angels camp in Arizona and there haven't been any issues so far. The 26-year-old starter is on his way back from a torn left patellar tendon. He should be ready around the second week of the regular season.
