RHP Tommy Hanson (ERA 6.55 WHIP 1.45 BAA .304)
Scouting Report: Hanson was roughed up in the first inning against the Astros on Friday, giving up three runs while throwing 37 pitches and allowing the first five batters to reach base. He somewhat recovered, giving up five runs in five innings.
RHP Anibal Sanchez (ERA 1.42 WHIP 0.95 BAA .152)
Game 2 12:05 PM
RHP Garrett Richards (ERA 4.22 WHIP 0.94 BAA .154)
Scouting Report: Sanchez is coming off back-to-back seven-inning, eight-strikeout wins, including last Sunday in Oakland. He has seven-inning quality starts against the Angels in each of the past two years but has a loss and a no-decision to show for it.
Scouting Report: Richards pitched well in his first start of the season, giving up four runs (two of which came when he was out of the game) in 6 1/3 innings. One of his best starts last year came vs. the Tigers, throwing seven shutout innings in Detroit on July 17.
RHP Rick Porcello (ERA 5.11 WHIP 1.30 BAA .280)
Game 12:35 PM
LHP C.J. Wilson (ERA 4.00 WHIP 1.50 BAA .232)
Scouting Report: Porcello rejoins the rotation after Detroit had him pitch out of the bullpen for a few days on the road trip. He had a loss and a no-decision in two starts against the Angels last year, allowing seven earned runs over 11 2/3 innings.
Scouting Report: Wilson notched his first quality start in a win over the Astros on Sunday, rebounding from a rough first couple of innings to pitch six innings of one-run ball, despite walking four. Wilson had a 4.61 ERA in two starts vs. the Tigers last season.
RHP Doug Fister (ERA 2.70 WHIP 1.10 BAA .243)
Scouting Report: Fister made his spring struggles a distant memory with three consecutive wins to open the season, including seven innings of four-hit ball Tuesday in Seattle. He fanned 10 Angels over eight innings of one-run ball last July.
