MLB Injury News:
Following the news that Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver
would be sidelined four to six weeks with a broken elbow to his non-throwing arm, speculation began that the Halos could look outside the organization for
the right-hander’s replacement. However, LA will stick in-house to fill in for
Weaver, as the team will move forward by inserting Garrett Richards into the
starting rotation, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.
Garrett Richards has been informed he'll start Saturday vs. #Astros. Angels
— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) April 9, 2013
Richards entered the season as a reliever for the Angels,
but he’ll make his first start of the year Saturday against the Houston Astros.
He surrendered only one run on three hits while striking out five and walking
one over his 4 1/3 innings of work this year.
A former first-round pick of the Angels, Richards came
through the team’s minor league system as a highly regarded pitching prospect.
The right-hander is still only 24 years old, and he owns a career ERA of 4.74
with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 1.45 over parts of three seasons in the majors,
spanning 41 appearances and 89 1/3 innings.

It’s Angels home opener day! But it’s off to a bad start already this morning as multiple reports have confirmed that Jered Weaver has been placed on the disabled list with a non-displaced radial head fracture on his left elbow and Angel fans woe. What does this mean for the Halos?
Yes, they lose their ace and leader in a crucial start of the season. The Dream Weaver (whose...
When the Angels signed Josh Hamilton I knew it was going to be tough. Tough on Hamilton to meet expectations. Tough on the front office to prove signing Josh was a smart decision. Tough on the fans to embrace a former enemy. Tough on me just to figure out how to deal with Hamilton's presence and all that comes with it.
As a general rule, I try and keep my own personal opinion...
The initial X-rays came back negative, but as Jered Weaver continued to feel pain and weakness in his left elbow, additional tests were run. Now, the Los Angeles Angels say their ace righty has a broken non-throwing elbow and will be out for four to six weeks. According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Weaver is expected to miss five to seven starts because of the injury. The team has...
When does four weeks feel like four years? When Jered Weaver is missing four weeks, at least, of action for the Angels. Sure, the Halo ace may not have been on top of his game in his first two starts of the 2013 season, but losing him to a broken left elbow for over a month is a big blow to the Angels' chances of getting out of the gates quickly for the first time in a long time...

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Danny Farris and I'm a huge Angels fan. My first Angels game was when I was 5 and I witnessed JT Snow hit a bomb. I learned that not only was he a local kid, he went to the same high school that I was going to go to. Ever since that day I was absolutely hooked. And because of THAT moment...
Since 2000, Mike Scioscia has been the manager of the Angels. He has compiled a record of 1156-928, good for a 55.4% win rate (an average record of 89-73). In his 14 seasons, the Angels have only had 3 seasons where they finished sub .500. Only one of which has come since 2003.
Under Scioscia's tutelage, Angel fans have been spoiled. Angel fans have become adjusted to the...
When approached by The Hall last year to write about someone for the “HOVG Heroes” project, I chose Nick Adenhart, the young Los Angeles Angels pitcher who was killed by a drunk driver four years ago this week.
Unfortunately, I’m writing again about a special member to baseball's big family that lost their life before they should have. Friend and fellow ballhawk Matt...

No really, despite the horrible start - what, is this 2012 again? - the Angels can be good for you! You just have to have a plan. I've had a plan that I have used for a few years, but usually taper off and on.
“The Angels Push-up Plan!” In the past it was simple: do 10 push-ups for every run the Angels score. Easy...
