Angels place Richards on DL with strained right biceps

Angels place Richards on DL with strained right biceps”

Richards' MRI on Friday showed that his elbow is sound, but he has been diagnosed with nerve irritation in the biceps and is likely to miss his next start, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. It certainly could be much worse, so the Angels are relieved with this news. "If I can eliminate a little bit of effort and keep everything moving in a straight line, it's going to help me". Said he feels fine now.

The 25-year-old Cotton, who came to the A's in a trade-deadline deal last year that sent Rich Hill and Josh Reddick to the Dodgers, can feel good about striking out Trout twice on seven pitches.

Richards allowed no runs on three hits over 4 2/3 innings against the A's.

RF Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 and scored in a 5-0 win against the A's.

"He's got such a wide gap between his fastball and his breaking stuff", Oakland manager Bob Melvin said.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have placed right-hander Garrett Richards on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right biceps.

Axford, 34, was warming up Tuesday night to potentially enter the game against the Angels when he felt tightness in his shoulder after throwing a curveball. It should have been a ticket to Tommy John surgery, but Richards opted to try a risky alternative treatment - stem cell platelet enrichment injections. "None, zero", Melvin said.

Richards made it through spring training solidly, but left his season-opening start at Oakland in the fifth inning Wednesday with pain in his arm.
