Garrett Richards fades after solid start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards pitched well enough to win for six innings Tuesday, but faltered late in a 10-9 extra innings loss to the A's.

Richards allowed three runs in his first six innings of work, and seemed well on his way to a win, up 5-3. Unfortunately, he ran into trouble in the seventh, allowing two more runs to come across, a sign of bad things to come for the bullpen.

Richards was charged with five earned runs on eight hits and a pair of walks in seven innings of work, while striking out five. He settled for a no-decision, as the game went into extras.

Richards had allowed just one run through his first two starts, so this was something of a disappointment. He will try to bounce back in his next start, carrying a 2-0 record and 2.84 ERA into Monday's scheduled start in Washington. 


Garrett Richards tosses seven one-hit innings Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was fantastic Wednesday, allowing just one hit and three walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out six in his team's 2-0 win over the Mariners.

Richards (2-0) threw 104 pitches in the gem, but only 58 were for strikes. Two of his three walks came in the first inning, but he settled down afterward, with his only hit allowed coming on a single in the third. Richards' defense committed two errors with him on the mound, but he was able to work around them. He's scheduled to face the A's Tuesday.


Garrett Richards topples lowly Astros


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards took advantage of a struggling Astros offense to notch his first win in his first start of the season Friday.

Richards allowed just one run in five innings of work, despite struggling with his control to the tune of five walks. He allowed just three singles and was helped by seven Astros strikeouts, while he threw 57 of 100 pitches for strikes.

Richards settled into a role as a long reliever and spot start a year ago, posting a 4.16 ERA in 145 innings. His next start is set for Wednesday in Seattle.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Skaggs went 2-1 with a 4.94 ERA and a 19:12 K:BB in 23 2/3 innings this spring. Richards posted a 3.47 ERA and 15:4 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.

Garrett Richards allows two runs in third spring start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards, who got hit hard in his second Cactus League start, bounced back on Thursday against the White Sox.

Garrett Richards hit hard in second start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was it with the loss on Saturday against the Diamondbacks in Cactus League action.

Richards fired two scoreless frames to start the game before surrendering a two-run double to Didi Gregorius and a run-scoring double to Paul Goldschmidt in the third inning. He allowed five runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out three over four innings pitched. He has allowed five runs over his first seven innings this spring.

Garrett Richards throws three scoreless innings Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards allowed just two hits in three scoreless innings in his spring debut Monday, striking out two in his team's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Richards is locked into the starting rotation this season but isn't using his status as an excuse to cruise through spring. "The last two years, I've competed for a spot, so I know what it's like to be on that end of the stick," he told MLB.com. "I still have that same mentality that I do every Spring Training. Just because I'm in the rotation right now doesn't mean that I'll be in the rotation the rest of the year. So, I have to stay sharp to keep competing and continue to improve."

Richards went 7-8 with a 4.16 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 101:44 K:BB ratio in 145 innings over 47 games (17 starts) last season.


Angels consider adding SP, but content with rotation alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Los Angeles remains interested in free agent pitcher Matt Garza, according to the Los Angeles Times.

However, Dipoto added he would also be satisfied going into spring training with a rotation of Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Garrett Richards, Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs, with Mark Mulder, Joe Blanton and Wade LeBlanc also in the mix competing for a spot in the rotation.

"We do like our pitching staff and the depth we’ve been able to come up with," Dipoto said. "We know there is some uncertainty with a handful of young pitchers as they learn the league, but we believe in their ability.

"The year Hector had last year was pretty good. The second-half surge we saw from Richards was very encouraging. Skaggs is a 22-year-old  who has done what he can in the minor leagues, and we believe he’s ready for opportunity."


Garrett Richards falls under .500 in final start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards took the mound Saturday for the final time on the penultimate day of the season at Texas. With the Rangers needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, Richards provided them with five runs by the end of the second inning.

Richards took the loss to finish his season at 7-8 with a 4.16 ERA. He gave up six runs Saturday, though only three were earned, on six hits and one walk over just 4 1/3 innings. He threw 76 pitches and struck out two batters.

Richards, 25, struggled in his final two outings for the Angels. He gave up 13 runs -- 10 earned -- on 14 hits over just nine innings in back-to-back losses. Richards did have a three-start winning streak in early September. He will fight for a rotation spot next season.

Garrett Richards falls back to .500


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards got the ball Monday at home against the A's. He did not have a very good outing.

Richards took the loss to fall to .500 at 7-7 on the year. He gave up seven earned runs on eight hits and two walks over just 4 2/3 innings in the defeat. He threw 93 pitches and struck out just one batter. He gave up two home runs to Oakland batters on the night as his ERA is now at 4.09.

The 25-year-old had been pitching wonderfully over his last few outings. He'd won his previous three decisions and had allowed just six runs over his last 25 2/3 innings before Monday. Richards is scheduled to start the second-to-last game of the regular season on Saturday at Texas for the Angels.

Garrett Richards Ks six in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2013) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards enjoyed another dominant outing but failed to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Athletics. The right-hander yielded one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings pitched.

Richards has allowed one earned run or fewer in four of his last six starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday at home against the A's again. He is 4-2 with a 3.60 ERA in 22 appearances (seven starts) at home this season.

Garrett Richards earns seventh win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2013) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards moved to 7-6 Thursday, giving up three earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out four in 6 2/3 innings in his team's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Richards has rattled off three straight wins to open September, giving up just five earned runs in 18 2/3 innings. He brings a 3.91 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 92:39 K:BB ratio into Tuesday's scheduled start against the A's.


Garrett Richards stays sharp in win over Rangers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards (6-6) tossed a quality start as he earned his sixth win of the season Saturday night against the Rangers. The right-hander surrendered two runs -- one earned -- on six hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings of a 8-3 victory.

Richards has allowed one earned run or fewer in three of his last four starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at Toronto. He owns a 4.24 ERA in 21 appearances (six starts) away from home.

Garrett Richards walks seven in win over Rays


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards walked a tight rope Monday night at home against the Rays. He never fell off.

Richards walked seven batters and threw 103 pitches over five innings on the outing. The good news was he got six strikeouts and Tampa Bay could never come through with the big hit off him as he held them to just one run. He gave up just two hits and the only run he allowed came on a Ben Zobrist solo homer as the second batter of the game.

Richards earned the win to improve to 5-6 on the season with a 4.06 ERA. The 25-year-old took a loss his last time out as he gave up four runs over just 3 1/3 innings. He was clearly much better Monday, but has walked 12 over his last 15 2/3 innings. Richards will look to have more command his next time out on Sunday against Texas.


Garrett Richards exits early in defeat


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Garrett Richards left his last start for the Angels due to a forearm injury after he was struck a batted ball. Richards, however, was fine and had no trouble making his start Wednesday at Tampa Bay.

That said, he had an early night against the Rays. Richards took the loss on the outing to fall to 4-6 for the Angels with a 4.16 ERA. He allowed four earned runs on seven hits and three walks over just 3 1/3 innings. He threw 84 pitches to go that distance and struck out two batters.

The 25-year-old Richards had gone 7 1/3 shutout innings on Aug. 23 in his last outing at Seattle before suffering the forearm issue. He earned the win in that outing. Still, Richards has been mediocre, at best, for the Angels. Richards will make his next scheduled starting appearance Monday in a rematch with the Rays. This time he'll be pitching at home in Anaheim.

Garrett Richards expected to make next scheduled start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards is expected to make his next scheduled start after exiting Friday's game with a forearm injury, the Orange County Register reports. Richards pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings before being removed after getting hit by a batted ball, but he should be good to go for Thursday's start against the Rays.

Richards is 4-5 with a 3.95 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 75:27 K:BB ratio in 107 innings over 40 appearances (10 starts).


Garrett Richards exits with forearm injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards had a dominant outing interrupted by a forearm injury Friday night against the Mariners. He left the game in the eighth inning with a right forearm contusion. The right-hander earned the win as he allowed four hits and two walks while striking out four over 7 1/3 scoreless innings pitched before the injury.

Richards could be in danger of missing his next start on Thursday against the Rays. He owns a 3.95 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP through 107 innings pitched this season.

Garrett Richards roughed up in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards was hit hard but escaped with a no-decision Saturday night against the Astros. The right-hander yielded five runs on 12 hits and no walks while striking out seven over six innings of a 6-5 win.

Garrett Richards solid in losing decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards took the loss Monday night in the Bronx against the Yankees. He probably didn't deserve it as he went eight outstanding innings in what amounted to a complete game.

Richards went the distance for the Angels as he gave up just two runs on seven hits and a walk. He threw 101 pitches and struck out three batters along the way. Still, with Hiroki Kuroda keeping the Angels scoreless over eight innings, Richards fell to 3-5 on the season.

The starter has a 4.03 ERA as he's been quality in three consecutive starts. Wins have been hard to come by for the Angels of late. Anaheim plans to give the ball again to Richards for his next start Saturday against Houston.


Garrett Richards takes no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) Angels starter Garrett Richards couldn't wait around long enough for the game to be decided in his outing Tuesday against Texas. He settled for a no-decision.

Richards left the game tied at three runs apiece as he gave up six hits and a walk over six innings. He threw 97 pitches and struck out five batters on the performance.

Richards (3-4) was making just his seventh start. He's been quality since joining the rotation. Richards is next scheduled to get the ball for a start Monday at the New York Yankees.


Garrett Richards starting to fulfill promise


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/6/2013) Garrett Richards' second stint in the Angels' rotation this year is going better than his first, and there's reason for mixed league owners to take notice. While he's held the Blue Jays and A's collectively to two runs over 12 innings, Richards' work in the bullpen also provided some signs of progress.

While Richards' mid-to-upper 90s fastball didn't always lead to strikeouts in the minors, he had some success by inducing grounders and limiting his walks. He has been much better on both counts this season, though he is still allowing contact at a high rate. That will keep him from being a viable option in standard mixed leagues, aside from a highly favorable two-start week, but he should be good enough at preventing runs to be worth starting in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

If Richards were stranding more than two-thirds of his baserunners, he could have an ERA in the mid-3.00s. That potential should be enough for deep league owners to give him a try next week, as he is currently in line to face the Yankees on the road and the Astros at home.


Garrett Richards earns win in quality start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2013) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards received seven runs of support in the first three innings of Thursday's 8-2 win against the Blue Jays and cruised to his third win, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in seven innings in the quality start.

Richards moved to 3-4 and owns 4.18 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB ratio over 79 2/3 innings spanning 36 appearances (six starts). He'll face the Rangers Tuesday.
