Garrett Richards of Los Angeles Angels opts to get stem-cell injection in elbow, avoid TJ surgery

I guess it doesn’t hurt. I’m not so sure how effective the treatment will be.

- Angels pitcher Garrett Richards had a stem-cell injection in his right elbow Monday.

Manager Mike Scioscia says there’s no timetable for his return. The right-hander went on the 15-day disabled list May 6, leaving the injury-riddled team without its best starting pitcher.

Richards decided on the injection as a way to avoid surgery for the torn ligament in his arm, although it will be weeks before he knows whether it worked.

“Hopefully it’s going to be the course of action he needs to heal and get back to action,” Scioscia said. “Really he doesn’t have many symptoms at all, so I know that he’s confident that he’ll heal with this course of action.”

LOOK: Mike Trout and a tale of love and deceit lead to a great prank

As you’re about to see, Angels warhorse Jered Weaver and outfielder/sun god Mike Trout leveraged the occasion of April Fool’s Day to hurtle staff ace Garrett Richards into a seeming broth of romantic tensions. The result was a palpably uncomfortable Richards and a pretend relationship shattered like commode dropped from space ...

This Is a Garrett Richards Changeup | FanGraphs Baseball

Garrett Richards might be ready to break out even bigger.

Richards listened to Street and then worked the recommended changeup into a bullpen. That led to using it in games, first against minor leaguers. He used it heavily in an intrasquad game, and while I don’t know how often he used the pitch Tuesday, it’s certainly been getting plenty of work. That 92 above might be an outlier — the linked article says the changeup tends to hang around 88-90. As you might’ve been able to predict, an Angels source said that when it works, Richards’ current changeup looks like the one thrown by Felix Hernandez.
