    • Richards will face live hitters for the first time Wednesday since injuring his elbow in May, Pedro Richards continues to work to avoid Tommy John surgery. If all goes well Wednesday, he will move on to the instructional leagues next week in Arizona, and from there we'll be able to see if Richards can rejoin the Angels rotation in time for Opening Day or even spring training.

    • Angels' Garrett Richards: Throws bullpen session
      By RotoWire Staff

      Richards (elbow) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. The mound session was Richards' first since he injured his elbow in early May. Afterward, Richards said that he has "no doubt in [his] mind" that he will avoid Tommy John surgery and pitch for the Angels next season. It sounds like he will face live hitters early next month then head off to pitch in the instructional league.

    • Richards (elbow) is slated to throw off of a mound Saturday, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports. Richards resumed throwing last month, but this will be his first time pitching off of elevated ground. While he's already been ruled out for the remainder of 2016, he looks to be on track toward returning for the start of the 2017 campaign without much issue.

    • Richards (elbow) hopes to throw from a mound at some point next week or the following week, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Richards is making good progress in his recovery from a torn UCL, having resumed throwing in mid-August and already extending his long toss sessions to 120 feet. Richards will not pitch again for the Angels this season, but if things keep going as planned, it seems likely he will be able to stave off a surgical procedure that at this point would likely cost him the entire 2017 season.

    • Richards (elbow) played catch from 90 feet Thursday, Pedro Moura of the LA Times reports. Over the last week, Richards has steadily increased his throwing distance by 15 feet per session. Although it's promising that Richards says his arm feels normal, he still has a long way to go. His current goal is to throw off a mound by mid-September, then pitch with one of the Angels' minor league affiliates before the season comes to a close.
