Angels not planning to shut down Garrett Richards


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He maintains velocity pretty easily."

He hasn't pitched more than 154 innings in a season during his career, but Richards is already at 131 1/3 innings this year and has the potential to reach 200 innings if no limiting measures are taken.
