OC Register: Angels’ Garrett Richards reported no issues during his rehab outing

Recommended Posts

BALTIMORE — Garrett Richards felt good during a rehab outing on Friday night, leaving the Angels to decide if they saw enough for him to take his next turn in the majors.

Richards threw 63 pitches and gave up five runs in 3-1/3 innings at Class-A Inland Empire, but he reported no issues with his hamstring, Manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday.

“He felt good physically,” Scioscia said. “The second time (through the lineup) he missed some spots. They hit some balls hard off him, but all his stuff looked good.”

If the Angels decide that Richards doesn’t need another outing in the minors, he could rejoin the rotation as soon as this week’s series in Seattle.


The Angels announced that John Lamb needs to have Tommy John surgery, for the second time, making him the fourth Angels pitcher this year to require the surgery.

JC Ramírez and Keynan Middleton had Tommy John surgery for the first time, and Blake Wood underwent a repair to his previous Tommy John surgery. That does not include Shohei Ohtani, who had stem-cell therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection in an attempt to heal his damaged ulnar collateral ligament without surgery.

Lamb pitched just three times for the Angels, most recently when he gave up five runs in 1-2/3 innings on Tuesday in Boston. Lamb said he felt some discomfort in his elbow and shoulder after that game, and an MRI revealed the damaged ulnar collateral ligament.

A product of Laguna Hills High, Lamb, 27, was once a top prospect with the Kansas City Royals. He had Tommy John surgery in 2011. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds and then underwent two back surgeries. The Angels released him last year and then re-signed him to a minor league deal just before spring training.


The Angels recalled Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A and optioned Michael Hermosillo, a move that provides better coverage on the bench. With Albert Pujols moved back to designated hitter after Mike Trout moved back to center field, the Angels played Friday’s game without a true infielder on the bench…

Jim Johnson (back) is expected to begin throwing off a mound this weekend, Scioscia said…

Nick Tropeano (shoulder) continue to throw, but he has not yet begun throwing off a mound, Scioscia said…

Saturday marked Scioscia’s 3,000th regular season game as the Angels manager.


Angels (Deck McGuire, 0-0, 6.08) at Orioles (Kevin Gausman, 3-6, 4.20), Sunday, 10 a.m. PT, Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM).
