Angels | Garrett Richards dominates Red Sox

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 06:26:46 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards pitched a two-hitter for his second career shutout Saturday, July 18, against the Boston Red Sox. Richards allowed just three baserunners on the day, and he retired Boston's final 15 hitters in order.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his past seven starts. While Richards' strikeout rate remains considerably down from last season, he's a bargain at this price on FantasyScore.

Angels | Garrett Richards falters

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 01:30:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards was tagged for 12 hits in a 7-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday, July 9. Richards had previously been 3-0 with a 0.97 ERA in five starts against Seattle.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) still has a 9-6 record this season, and all his splits have been good. Chalk this up to a bad outing and the fact Seattle's bats were due to break out.

Angels | Garrett Richards has owned M's

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 15:59:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards is 3-0 with a 0.97 ERA in his last five starts against the Seattle Mariners, who he faces Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has been pretty bad on the road this year, although Safeco Field is more of a pitcher's park. Facing M's ace Felix Hernandez is another con of choosing Richards on FantasyScore tonight, as it might prove tough to pick up the win kickback. However, Richards could find plenty of success against a Mariners team ranked 23rd in OPS (.682) against right-handers this year.

Angels | Garrett Richards woeful on road

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:12:52 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards is scheduled to face the Seattle Mariners and SP Felix Hernandez Thursday, July 9. Richards is 5-1 with a 2.25 ERA in seven home starts, but a dismal 4-4 with a 4.50 ERA in eight road outings while the opposition is hitting .257 against him in 46 road innings.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,800; or 13.6% of cap) would not be a recommended FantasyScore play against King Felix anyway, but especially so since the game is in Seattle.

Angels | Garrett Richards rocked

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 04:40:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards only lasted two-thirds of an inning Saturday, June 6, as he gave up six runs, five hits and two walks in an 8-2 loss to the New York Yankees. Richards has alternated wins and losses in his last six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) may do very well in his next start if the record indicates it. No doubts about it, this was a bad outing. However, the Yankees are a team catching fire on offense right now. Richards remains a decent pitcher, but look at his matchups before making a choice.

Angels | Garrett Richards looking dominant

Tue, 12 May 2015 10:36:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards had a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his last start Sunday, May 10, and he has a 2.27 ERA in his first five stats this year, allowing eight earned runs and 18 hits while walking 15 and striking out 29 in 31 2/3 innings. His fastball is touching 95.8 mph, too, which is tied for second-highest among starters. His strikeout-to-walk ratio is just 1.81, though, showing that his command isn't all the way back after coming back from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It's scary to think that Richards ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) can still get better this season once he straightens out his control issues. The high velocity and ability to sustain it deep into games shows that his knee isn't a problem for him at all. Richards is a strong FantasyScore play and should continue to be for all of the season.

Angels | Garrett Richards looking good

Wed, 06 May 2015 11:05:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards had a no-decision against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, May 5, but he gave up just one run in seven innings to drop his ERA to 2.52 through his first four starts. He also went a season-high 113 pitches and has allowed just eight runs (seven earned) in 25 innings in 2015, while allowing 17 hits, 12 walks and 19 strikeouts. His final nine fastballs of the night Tuesday all were 95 mph or above.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) looks fully healthy after suffering a gruesome knee injury in 2014 and having surgery. His arm strength looks to be in great shape, too. Consider him a fine starting pitching candidate for your daily lineups each time he toes the rubber.

Angels | Garrett Richards took shutout into 7th

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 17:14:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards took a shutout into the seventh inning Thursday, April 30, against the Oakland Athletics. Richards completed six full innings, allowing four hits, three walks and one earned run, while striking out five hitters, to pick up the win.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been benefiting from a .212 BABIP but was hit around a little bit Thursday. Richards' strikeout rate is down this season while his walk rate has risen from last year. As these two figures start normalizing, Richards should be in line for more impressive outings. He's a quality buy-low option if he can be had for the right price.

Angels | Garrett Richards shaky in debut

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 20:30:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) made his season debut Sunday, April 19, allowing five hits, three earned runs and four walks while striking out four in five innings in a loss to the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) struggled with his command and reached 100 pitches in just five innings. Expect some rust as he returns from a serious knee injury, and in the meantime, it is best to avoid Richards at FantasyScore until he looks like an ace on the mound again.

Angels | Garrett Richards to debut Sunday

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 14:07:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) will make his season debut Sunday, April 19, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of your cap) has a good matchup, but it's hard to drop that much of your FantasyScore cap on a player's first start in eight months.
