Angels' Garrett Richards: 'Opening day is still very possible'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards told reporters Wednesday his goal is to be ready for opening day, regardless of the team's expectations. The team is expecting Richards, who is coming off August knee surgery, to be ready shortly after the start of the season.

"I don't know why I would change my mind now," he said, per the Los Angeles Times. "In my mind, opening day is still very possible."

Richards added that his arm feels normal. He is scheduled to throw his fourth bullpen session Thursday and will pitch out of the windup for the first time. He is slated to begin pitcher's fielding practice (PFP) in 10 days, per The Orange County Register.

Richards was in the midst of a breakout season in 2014 before suffering a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee. He went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 26 starts last season.

Angels' Garrett Richards throws again, 10 days from fielding
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels RHP Garrett Richards continued his comeback from Tommy John surgery. Richards threw for the fourth time this spring on Monday, logging 40 fastballs in a bullpen session. 

Richards is still pitching from the stretch, exclusively. The next step will be to throw from the windup. Pitching coach Mike Butcher said Richards looked "outstanding" during the session, according to MLB.com. "He looked really good," Butcher added.

Manager Mike Scioscia told Angel Gonzalez of MLB.com that Richards is 10 days away from fielding drills, another milestone in his comeback. He won't pitch the first time through the rotation in spring.

Angels' Garrett Richards aiming for opening day
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Garrett Richards is aiming to be ready by opening day, according to MLB.com.

Richards is slightly behind the other pitchers in camp after having knee surgery last season, but remains optimistic about his chances to return early. The club has no need for a fifth starter to start the season, and that could lead to Richards landing on the disabled list to open things up. Due to off days, Los Angeles doesn't need a fifth starter until April 14. It's possible Richards could try to aim for that date.

Manager Mike Scioscia said Richards' progress will determine when he pitches again. "He's going to pitch when he's ready," Scioscia added, "whether we have a lot of depth or no depth." Richards is planning to throw three times next week, and is waiting to be cleared to participate in fielding drills.

The 26-year-old said his surgically-repaired knee has felt good so far. "Everything feels good, agility feels good," Richards said. "I don't notice anything different from before."

Richards posted a 2.61 ERA over 168 2/3 innings last season.
