Angels SP Garrett Richards rocked in romp
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) Not many pitchers have been able to slow the streaking Blue Jays, and count Angels starter Garrett Richards as one who tried and failed, as he was hit hard in a loss Sunday.
Spotted with a 5-1 lead after the first inning, Richards could not hold it, giving up nine runs on 10 hits, including two home runs, in five-plus innings of work.
Richards is one of the league's most effective ground ball pitchers, but only got eight in the 29 batters he faced Sunday -- for comparision, he got 18 ground-ball outs against 26 hitters in his last outing on Aug. 18.

|(8/14/15) Angels right-hander Garrett Richards posted a quality start on Thursday, but he did not earn a win in his outing against the Royals. Richards allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out four, throwing 70 of his 104 pitches for strikes.

Angels SP Garrett Richards receives loss in Saturday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/15) Despite producing a quality start during Saturday's contest, Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was on the losing end of the 5-0 loss to the Orioles.
Richards allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings of work. He struck out seven and walked one. His biggest mistake was giving up a solo home run to Manny Machado in the fifth inning. He is now 11-9 with a 3.51 ERA.
Richards has earned a quality start in three of his last five starts and is 1-3 in his last four outings.
|2014 summary: Garrett Richards always had the stuff of an ace and finally figured out what to do with it in 2014, revealing no discernible shortcoming in the five months he was healthy. His strikeout rate was up. His walk rate was down. His home run rate led all of baseball. In terms of Head-to-Head points per game, he was a top-10 starting pitcher, ranking up there with David Price and Max Scherzer, and the underlying numbers gave every reason to believe it was legitimate. But then ...|
Playing time status: Yes, then Richards tore the patellar tendon in his left knee covering first base in late August, ending his season and beginning a lengthy rehabilitation that could last as long as nine months. Early reports suggest it'll come closer to six, giving him a reasonable shot of being ready for the start of the Angels season, but the threat of him missing an extended period will certainly cause him to fall in drafts.
2015 outlook: Richards' dominance is easy to quantify. He had the fastest fastball of any starting pitcher in 2014, and because he keeps the ball on the ground and has overcome his past control issues, he doesn't leave much room for nasty surprises ... except injury, of course. The later your league waits to draft, the more accurately you can predict Richards' return, but he's not slipping past the middle rounds regardless.
