News
With Matt Shoemaker scheduled to start Monday and Hector Santiago on Tuesday, it appears as if Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be in line to start Sunday against the Astros, reports MLB.com.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, threw a bullpen session on Friday after a Triple-A rehab start on Tuesday. After his session, Richards said he's been able to accomplish every bench mark that was required of him during his rehab.

Richards went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.

Angels centerfielder Mike Trout connected for his 100th career home run on Friday in Houston, becoming the youngest-ever to reach 100 homers and 100 steals.

Trout reached the century mark in homers at 23 years and 251 days.

The youngest ever to reach 100 was Mel Ott, who did it at 22 years, 132 days old. The youngest to reach 100 as an American League player was Tony Conigliaro (22 years, 197 days old).

Trout added another home run, a three-run shot, in the eighth inning.

The two homers gave Trout his fourth career multihomer game and the first since Sept. 13 against the Astros.

News
Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker started to struggle during the first inning of Monday's loss to the Athletics and he never improved.

After giving up a run in the first, Shoemaker pitched a scoreless second, but ran into trouble in the third and fourth innings. Shoemaker gave up a three-run home run to Stephen Vogt in the third and failed to get out of the fourth inning after being replaced following a solo home run to Marcus Semien.

Shoemaker (2-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits over three innings. He struck out two and walked three, while taking the loss. It was the first time in his three starts this season that he failed to pitch at least six innings. His ERA rose from 4.38 to 6.46.

His next expected to start will be Saturday against the Rangers.

News
Angels pitcher Mike Morin lasted just 1/3 of an inning Saturday in Los Angeles' 4-0 loss to the Astros. Morin served up a three-run home run to Robbie Grossman on a 1-0 pitch in the seventh, leading to the Angels' loss.

"We know the dimensions of the ballpark," Morin said. "I didn't execute the pitch -- bottom line."

Morin has posted a 4.91 ERA in 3 2/3 innings this season and may be fighting for a role with his struggles.

"I trust Sosh completely," said Morin. "It has nothing to do with that. I'll be ready day in and day out, whether it's the second inning or the 10th or the seventh. It's not weighing on my mind at all."

Angels starter Garrett Richards returned to the mound on Sunday for the first time since a knee injury last August ended his season, and was understandably rusty during five innings of work in a 4-3 loss to the Astros. 

Richards gave up four runs, three earned, while allowing five hits. He struck out four Astros but also walked four as only 60 of his 100 pitches were strikes. After the outing, he told MLB.com that he's ready to close the book on his recovery. 

"I'm done with rehab," Richards said. "I'm ready to go. That chapter of my career is over with. Now it's about winning ballgames. That's what I'm concerned about."

Richards was 13-4 last season before the injury, and his return figures to boost the Angels' rotation.

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella is in the midst of a four-game hitting streak that has boosted his season line to .314/.359/.371 in 35 at-bats.

Batting in the No. 9 spot in six straight games over the last week, the second baseman has been able to find some offense, going 7 for 19 with two doubles, three RBI and three runs. He's rewarded manager Mike Scioscia's decision to give him the starting job over Josh Rutledge before the season so far.

He added that he's been able to throw from 130 feet and everything is going well.

Shoulder - 15-day DL. Out until at least late April (Updated - 4/7/15)
News
The Angels and embattled slugger Josh Hamilton are in talks to resolve their dispute. A number of scenarios are being explored, including a trade or a buyout, although no agreement is close at this time, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. The report comes a day after CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman mentioned the possibility of a buyout for Hamilton.

Prior to the start of the 2015 season, Hamilton admitted to Major League Baseball that he relapsed. Hamilton has battled drug and alcohol addiction for the majority of his professional career.

Hamilton, who signed a five-year, $125 million deal with the Angels back in 2012, is not comfortable with the Los Angeles/Orange County lifestyle, Heyman added. The Angeles currently owe him $83 million. At this point, there appears to be no rush to get a deal done since yearly salaries become guaranteed on Opening Day. There is also language in Hamilton's contract protecting the Angels should Hamilton not be in playing shape following his relapse. For now, Hamilton remains on the 15-day disabled list recovering from shoulder surgery.
