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 9:22:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards suffered a left patellar injury during Wednesday's game. The extent is unknown at the moment, according to Mike DiGiovanna of 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.
 
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
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards blanked the Rangers over seven innings Friday night to improve to 11-2.
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).
 
Hot6/14/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards was dominant again Saturday, firing six shutout innings and striking out 10 against the Braves.
Insight: Richards has allowed just one run on 12 hits while posting a 23/3 K/BB over 21 innings since his worst start of the season on May 30 (2/3, 5 H, 5 ER, 3 BB). He has a 2.87 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP this season.
 
Hot6/4/2014 11:07:00 PM
Description: After failing to get out of the first inning on May 30 at Oakland, Angels starter Garrett Richards went eight innings and struck out nine without allowing a walk or a run Wednesday at Houston.
Insight: It was the second time this season Richards didn't walk a batter. The flamethrowing right-hander has a 3.25 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP and 73 Ks in 74 2/3 innings.
 
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.

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.
 
4/20/2013 8:43:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards tossed seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball Saturday against the Tigers. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter.
Insight: The hard-throwing Richards hasn't been a big strikeout pitcher since moving up from Class A, and he has a BB/9 over four since his first year at Triple-A in 2012. He'll remain in the rotation as long as Jered Weaver is out, but we'll need to see him do this again before we endorse him in fantasy leagues.
 
4/9/2013 4:10:00 PM
Description: Garrett Richards will replace Jered Weaver in the Angels' rotation, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN. Weaver suffered a fracture in his left elbow Sunday and will miss 4-6 weeks.
Insight: Richards made nine starts last season and posted a 3-2 record, 4.42 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 1.26 K/BB. He can be ignored for now in most leagues.
 
7/21/2012 4:45:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles starter Garrett Richards will start Tuesday at Kansas City as the Angels have moved the struggling Jerome Williams to the bullpen.
Insight: Richards (3-1, 3.53) has allowed a ton of baserunners (1.55 WHIP) but he's managed to limit the scoring. He's a risky play against better offenses but you can use him Tuesday against the Royals.
 
7/17/2012 10:45:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles starter Garrett Richards limited the Tigers' offense to just three hits in seven scoreless frames as the Angels won 13-0 Tuesday night in Detroit.
Insight: It's easy to forget about Richards (3-1, 3.53 ERA) with all of the dominant offensive performances on display Tuesday night at Comerica Park but this was one of his better starts of the year. Unfortunately, with Dan Haren close to returning from the DL, this could be the last time Richards sees the mound for a while.
 
6/17/2012 7:06:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards shut out Arizona over eight four-hit innings Sunday to improve to 2-0. He walked four and struck out five.
Insight: Richards (2-0, 0.86) has been solid in three starts in place of Jered Weaver (back) after going 5-2 with a 4.31 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A Salt Lake. However, he'll either go back to Triple-A or move to the bullpen when Weaver returns within the next two weeks.
 
4/21/2012 1:48:00 PM
Description: It's not like the pitching-rich Angels needed more help, but SP Garrett Richards is dominating for Triple-A Salt Lake of the PCL in the early going. In four starts he's got a 1.67 ERA, 0.963 WHIP and 27 Ks against six walks.
Insight: The 42nd pick of the 2009 draft out of the University of Oklahoma was 12-2 last year with a 3.15 ERA with the Arkansas Travelers of the Texas League. Don't expect him with the big team in 2012 unless injuries force their hand, but he's got a bright future as a No. 2 or No. 3 starter.
