Player Notes
As expected, Garrett Richards (knee) will start Sunday afternoon against the Astros.

Advice: Richards tore his left patellar tendon last August. It's a welcome return, as the Angels' rotation entered Saturday with the fifth-highest ERA in the American League. Richards enjoyed a breakout season last year, compiling a 13-4 record, 2.61 ERA, and 1.04 WHIP over 26 starts. Expect more of the same in 2015.

Garrett Richards (knee) is expected to make his season debut on Sunday against the Astros.

Advice: That's assuming he feels fine after his rehab start Tuesday at Triple-A Salt Lake when he gave up five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out five over five innings. The Angels want to keep Richards on his normal four days of rest routine, which means Matt Shoemaker would be pushed back to Monday. Richards threw 91 pitches Tuesday, so he doesn't figure to be too limited from a pitch count perspective Sunday.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Garrett Richards (knee) could "possibly" rejoin the rotation after his rehab start Tuesday.

Advice: Scioscia doesn't want to commit to it yet just in case something happens to Richards Tuesday, but all signs point to him rejoining the rotation early next week. Richards struck out 12 batters over seven innings in a simulated game last Thursday.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia confirmed Friday that Garrett Richards would make at least one more minor league rehab start before rejoining the Angels rotation.

Advice: Richards struck out 12 batters over seven innings in a simulated game on Thursday and appears to be making quick work in his recovery from knee surgery. He'll start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, and if all goes well could be cleared to rejoin the Halos shortly after.

Advice: Richards, who is making his way back from knee surgery, gave up four hits and three walks while striking out 12 batters. He throw a total of 96 pitches.
