3/1/2015 3:06:00 PM
Description: Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he is expecting Garrett Richards to rejoin the rotation in the middle of April according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: It sounds like the Angels have given up on Richards being available for Opening Day. Richards had surgery on his patella tendon after he suffered a knee injury in August. His recovery has gone well, which is great news for the young arm. He posted a 2.61 ERA with a 1.04 WHIP in 168 2/3 innnings last season.
 
2/17/2015 8:17:00 AM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards (knee) threw a short bullpen session on Monday - about 20 pitches, according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: This is great news as he progresses from a torn patellar tendon in his left knee suffered late August after a breakout season - 13-4, 2.61 ERA, 1.038 WHIP, 164 Ks in 168 2/3 IP. He probably won't be ready for Opening Day, but a late April or early May goal is a reasonable expectation.
 
2/13/2015 10:42:00 AM

1/8/2015 4:30:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards (knee) will start running on a de-weighted treadmill on Monday.
Insight: He suffered the unfortunate injury in late August, when he tore his patellar tendon in his left knee. Look for Richards to be ready to pitch sometime in May. He is still just 26-years-old, and could make for a steal on draft day.
 
12/10/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Angels coach Mike Scioscia said Wednesday he doesn't expect starter Garrett Richards to be ready for Opening Day according to the Orange County Register.

8/22/2014 9:11:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee.
Insight: Richards suffered the injury on Aug. 20 at Boston. He's been given a timetable of 6-9 months, so while he might be ready for the start of the 2015 season he also could be out through April.

Hot8/20/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards suffered what appeared to be a major right leg injury Wednesday against Boston, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Richards caught his spike in the dirt as he was covering first base in the second inning and his knee buckled. The right-hander has been the Angels' ace this season and one of the best starters in baseball, going 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP and 164 Ks in 168 2/3 innings.
 
Hot7/11/2014 10:45:00 PM

Insight: Richards has a 2.55 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP and 127 Ks in 123 1/3 innings this season, but he won't be representing the AL in the All-Star game. He lost the Final Vote to Chris Sale.
 
Hot7/1/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards went 4-0 with a 1.05 ERA and 35 Ks over 34 1/3 innings in June, and he threw eight innings while giving up three runs on two hits and striking out nine Tuesday at Chicago.
Insight: Richards is now 9-2 with a 2.81 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP and it's no fluke. He has some of the best stuff in the majors and although he sometimes has a hard time controlling it (3.3 BB/9, 15 WP), batters have a much harder time hitting it (77 H in 109 IP).

Hot5/14/2014 4:52:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards held the Phillies scoreless on five hits while striking out eight batters in seven innings Wednesday afternoon to improve to 4-0.
Insight: Here's the kicker: Richards (2.42 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) had zero walks. So far, walks have been the young right-hander's only issue. However, he has issued just six free passes in his last 27 innings while striking out 30 batters in that span.
 
Hot5/9/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards threw his fourth straight quality start Friday against Toronto.
Insight: Richards gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings. The 25-year-old flame-thrower has a 2.80 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, 46 strikeouts and just one home run allowed in 45 innings this season. His only issue is a 4.0 BB/9.
 
6/2/2013 9:02:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles righthander Garrett Richards sprained his ankle Sunday against Houston. SOURCE: Bill Shaikin, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Richards didn't seem too worried about the injury after the game. The Angels might keep him out as a precaution but we wouldn't expect Richards to miss more than a couple games. Now that Richards (2-3, 5.15 ERA) isn't a starter his fantasy value is pretty limited.
