Angels starter Garrett Richards progressing in knee rehab

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards is expected to begin pitcher fielding drills in about a week as he makes progress from August knee surgery, and the club remains hopeful he could be pitching in games two to three weeks into the regular season for the reigning AL West champions.

"It's not going to be opening day, let's put it that way," manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday. "He knows it, and it's great that he's not going to be able to rush it because our medical staff's not going to let him. There's a progression. He has to pass every plateau. It's great that he's going to shoot for being ready. He's working very hard to be ready opening day, but he's not going to be ready opening day."

Scioscia said that Richards would throw a bullpen session of 40-50 pitches and do some simulated work Sunday to prepare for fully fielding his position, weather permitting with rain forecast all weekend in the Arizona desert. That work would include agility work in the outfield and making some cuts and turns like he does moving off the mound.
