Angels not expecting Garrett Richards to be ready by opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Angels are not expecting starting pitcher Garrett Richards (knee) to be ready for the start of the season. Manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday they are hoping Richards will return within the first six weeks of the season.

Richards has been cleared to throw as he works his way back from a torn petallar tendon, which he suffered in late August. He was expected to need 6-9 months to recover from surgery.

Angels ace Garrett Richards has been cleared to throw as part of his recovery from a torn petallar tendon, per MLB.com.

Report: Angels' Richards, Freese expected to be tendered offers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Angels are expected to tender a contract offer to third baseman David Freese by Tuesday's deadline, according to the Los Angeles Times. Freese is expected to make $6.3 million in arbitration.

However, the team is not expected to tender an offer to infielder Gordon Beckham. The team would like to have Beckham back on the roster next season, but not for the $5 million he is projected to make in his third year of arbitration.

The Angels are also expected to tender offers to Garrett Richards, Kevin Jepsen, Hector Santiago, Fernando Salas and Collin Cowgill.

Angels SP Garrett Richards remains on track 10 weeks after surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards remains on track 10 weeks into his recovery from surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee, according to the Los Angeles Times

Richards’ agent, Fred Wray, said Monday the right-hander hurler has been riding an exercise bike, walking without crutches and doing strengthening and range-of-motion exercises. He is expected to begin jogging on a de-weighted treadmill by the end of November. 

If he continues to progress without setback, Richards could begin throwing and light baseball activities by late January. Richards was expected to need 6-9 months recovery following surgery.

"The key to his rehab is not overdoing it for the first three months," Wray said. "After that, he can slowly work his way back into more activities. From everything I’ve heard, he’s on pace with everything. It’s going very well."

Fantasy Analysis | 1408663834
Garrett Richards potentially still worth keeping
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

What a sad day for Garrett Richards and his Fantasy owners. What an unfortunate end to a brilliant season that probably hasn't gotten the pub it deserved.

He was the ace for the best team in baseball at the time of his injury. And because his breakthrough was so unexpected, he was a waiver claim in most Fantasy leagues. With that kind of production at that low of a cost -- and from a dual-eligible pitcher, no less -- you could argue Richards was the most valuable player in Fantasy for the 5 1/2 months he was healthy.

But now, he's not -- and because an injury no one would have expected. We've all learned to brace ourselves for the next torn up elbow, but not knee -- not for a pitcher, anyway -- which means we don't really know what comes next. The timetable for Richards is 6-9 months, which is an extremely wide range. It gives him some hope of returning by opening day but also allows for him to miss up to half the season.

My guess he misses some time -- enough to diminish his keeper value in a league where you keep just a handful of players, and all on equal terms. But if you keep as many as one-third of your players, and you keep them relative to what they cost you, again, given the price tag for Richards coming into the year, I'd hold on to him.
