Garrett Richards to start opener for Angels, but Shohei Ohtani’s place remains uncertain

first_img“I think Garrett showed that he’s totally healthy and ready to go,” Scioscia said. “The velocity is there. His movement is there. His breaking pitches are there. In his last couple outings, some pitches got away from him at times, and his command wasn’t going. But he had a great spring.”Heaney, who suffered elbow inflammation after his last spring start, will throw off the mound in a bullpen session Tuesday, Scioscia said. Heaney presumably remains a candidate to pitch the first time the Angels need a sixth starter (April 11), but Scioscia said Heaney wouldn’t push things in the bullpen session.“It will be more about just getting out there and getting used to the hill again,” Scioscia said. “Every time he goes out there, it gives us a little more information about where he is, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.” LOS ANGELES — Two down, four to go. The Angels have set their rotation for the first two games of this season, but the rest remains a mystery for now, as does the initial landing spot for Shohei Ohtani.Garrett Richards will start on Opening Day against Oakland on Thursday, as expected, and Tyler Skaggs will start Friday, Manager Mike Scioscia announced before Monday’s game against the Dodgers. Scioscia said he would announce the starters for the Angels’ third and fourth games on Tuesday night.So the Ohtani drama got prolonged for another day, and Scioscia will wait until the end of a scrutinized spring in order to announce a role for Ohtani, the Angels’ prize free-agent signing from Japan.Presumably, Ohtani and Matt Shoemaker (who started Monday) are the candidates to start Saturday against the Athletics. J.C. Ramirez, who is scheduled to start Tuesday’s spring finale against the Dodgers, could start against Oakland on Sunday. Andrew Heaney, the hoped-for sixth member of the rotation, is recovering from elbow inflammation. A look at the 2018 Angels, position by position No matter what, the Angels will hope for a dramatic two-way improvement from Ohtani, given that he had a 27.00 ERA in the spring and had three hits in 28 at-bats going into Monday’s game.“There was a lot on his plate,” Scioscia said. “He’s very, very comfortable and I think he’s confident, and if he’s confident, we’re confident. I’m going to be excited to see how we finish in these last couple games and then we’ll see what happens as we come out of the gate on Thursday.”Ohtani hit eighth in the Angels’ order Monday, near the end of a spring in which his strikeout-to-hit ratio was a startling 3 to 1. Things didn’t go much better on the mound, and on Saturday, in his final spring appearance, Ohtani faced minor-leaguers and gave up two runs in 5-1/3 innings.Scioscia praised that effort, and before Monday’s game he continued to express confidence that Ohtani can hit at the major-league level. Scioscia opined that Ohtani hasn’t looked overmatched against any particular pitches this spring, and that his improvement is continual, even if it hasn’t shown up in stats.“You’re starting to see it in some of the games he has played,” Scioscia said. “Maybe not major-league games in spring training, but in some of the minor-league games. It’s more of a timing issue, but every hitter goes through that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Angels’ 2018 schedule Angels hope newcomers can boost offense, key improvement in 2018 RICHARDS READYWhile Ohtani remains a question mark, the Angels seem secure in Richards, who will look to make it beyond the first month of the season for the first time since 2015.Richards’ 2016 season ended with an elbow injury in early May. Last year, Richards started the third game of the season but left it with a biceps injury and didn’t return until September.Richards ended the season with a solid five-start stretch and pitched mostly well this spring, although he allowed two runs (and five walks) in 3-2/3 innings in his final major-league spring appearance. Richards faced minor-leaguers Friday and allowed two runs in three innings.Related Articleslast_img read more
