Williams officially named Angels' fifth starter
MINNEAPOLIS -- Jerome Williams was officially declared the Angels' fifth starter on Thursday, which was basically a formality considering he proved he was healthy and effective through two Minor League rehab outings.

Williams will now take the ball on Sunday at Yankee Stadium, opposite righty Ivan Nova.

Highly touted prospect Garrett Richards, who had a solid spring and has given up just three runs in 13 1/3 Minor League innings, will remain at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Utility man Alexi Amarista, the only position player with options remaining, is expected to be sent down to the Minors to make room for Williams later this week, as the Angels will go with 12 pitchers and 13 position players the rest of the way.
