  • Sam Bachman, Jose Quijada Continue Their Throwing Programs

    Headshot for Sam Bachman

    Los Angeles Angels pitchers Sam Bachman (shoulder) and Jose Quijada (elbow) have continued their throwing programs in spring training. Bachman is recovering from right-shoulder surgery last September and was planning to throw from 75 to 90 feet on Monday. Quijada, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery on his left elbow last May, was planning to throw up to 120 feet on Monday. Bachman will begin the 2024 season on the injured list and is expected to miss at least the first month of the 2024 season. He's not a lock to join the big-league roster when he's activated. Quijada will open the year on the 60-day injured list and probably won't make his 2024 debut until after the All-Star break.

  • Sam Bachman Won't Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for Sam Bachman

    Los Angeles Angels right-hander Sam Bachman (shoulder) won't be ready for Opening Day despite making progress on his rehab. The 24-year-old said he expects to miss the first month of the season and is likely headed to Triple-A Salt Lake to open the season in their starting rotation. Bachman made his big-league debut in the 2023 season and it was a success as he tossed a 3.18 ERA across 11 appearances, all out of the bullpen, and 17 innings of work. However, he also posted a subpar 5.81 ERA across six starts at the Double-A level. Control appears to be his main issue as Bachman posted a 14.3% BB% in the big leagues last season after walking 16.9% of the batters he faced in the minors. A 2021 first-round pick, Bachman's return to action should be monitored by dynasty league managers.
