Injuries
Ankle - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-August (Updated - 8/3/14)
News
Angels pitcher Joe Thatcher has been able to do some light throwing off a mound, but isn't ready to return just yet, according to MLB.com.

Manager Mike Scioscia said Thatcher was "not close" to coming back. He's been sidelined since August 2 due to an ankle issue.

News
Angels pitcher Hector Santiago lasted five innings Friday against the Athletics.

Santiago allowed two runs, one earned, on seven hits over five innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Santiago gave up his first run against the first batter he faced. Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run out to left center off Santiago in the first inning. He was able to get through the next three innings unscathed, but ran into trouble again in the fifth. On a fielder’s choice, a run wound up coming around on a throwing error by shortstop Erick Aybar. Santiago was able to get out of the inning, but was replaced to start the sixth. Santiago threw 98 pitches. 

With the loss, Santiago dropped to 3-8. He’ll take on the Marlins in his next start.

Angels pitcher Jason Grilli picked up his first save since joining the club Thursday.

Grilli entered with a two-run lead, and slammed the door shut. He struck out the first batter he faced, and induced a flyout and a groundout to end the game. Huston Street was unavailable after pitching the past two days. It was Grilli's 12th save of the season, and first since becoming a member of the Angels.

Back - 15-day DL. Expected to begin Triple-A rehab assignment Aug. 23 (Updated - 8/23/14)
News
Angels infielder Grant Green is set to begin his minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake Friday, but he may not have a role waiting for him in the majors when he gets back from a back injury. According to MLB.com Friday, there may not be room for Green to play in the majors, given the acquisition of Gordon Beckham recently.

Green was not playing everyday before his injury, but it is not clear if there will be room for him on the roster before September expansion.

News
I'm tired of playing the Matt Shoemaker skeptic. If nine starts aren't enough to tell us anything -- maybe not everything, but something -- then we might as well stop commenting on players midseason. Since that's not going to happen, I'm looking at what Shoemaker has done in his last nine -- a 2.54 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings -- and jumping on the bandwagon before it's too late.

So what if he was terrible in the minors? (And yes, he was terrible, getting stuck there until age 27 thanks to a 4.52 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in seven seasons.) So was Dallas Keuchel, and it didn't stop us from swimming to him like sharks to chum when he looked good in April and May. And for the most part, he's kept it up.

In Shoemaker's case, there were a few standout years in there -- most notably 2011, when he had a 3.15 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. You know what was so special about that year? It was the only one after 2009 when he spent any time anywhere other than the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues. In 23 starts at Double-A Arkansas that year, he had a 2.48 ERA.

Of course, that doesn't explain why Shoemaker is so much more of a strikeout pitcher in the majors, and like Keuchel, I think he'll regress in that area a bit. But by now, I think he's proven his worth to Fantasy owners.

News
Angels pitcher Jered Weaver had some control issues Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Weaver allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out one and walked four during the outing. An early home run by David Ortiz put Weaver down by a run during the first inning. He settled in at that point, tossing three straight scoreless innings. He ran into more trouble in the fifth. After giving up a single and a walk, Weaver threw a wild pitch to put both runners in scoring position. One run would score on a groundout, but Weaver would get out of the inning without giving up any more runs. He was pulled after putting two hitters on in the sixth inning. One run would come around to score after Weaver left the game. That run was charged to Weaver.

Weaver left with the game tied, earning a no-decision. He’ll take on the Athletics in his next start.

Knee - 60-day DL. Out for season (Updated - 8/21/14)
News
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.

Angels pitcher Huston Street saved his 34th game Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Street entered with a one-run lead, and got the job done. After leading off the inning with a single, the Red Sox decided to sacrifice the base-runner to second. With the tying run in scoring position, Street buckled down. He struck out Dustin Pedroia for the second out. After intentionally walking David Ortiz, Street struck out Mike Napoli to end the game.

Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was ejected from Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

Pujols was thrown out in the sixth inning. He struck out earlier in the inning, but was thrown out a few batters later. Manager Mike Scioscia left the dugout to argue balls and strikes, and was immediately tossed from the game. Though Pujols remained in the dugout, he was also thrown out. Pujols went 0 for 3, with two strikeouts before he was ejected. It was just the sixth time in his career Pujols was thrown out of a game.
