Angels’ Garrett Richards shuts out Red Sox | MLB.com

If Richards is back to where he was last year, Houston may be in trouble.

“I think that one of the best-kept secrets is really how our rotation’s doing,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “Our rotation has given us a chance to win the lion’s share of starts we’ve had this year. The last couple of games are indicative of the way they threw in the first half.”

Statcast: Richards spins his way to success

When you look at Richards’ full repertoire, you can see that he’s actually got several pitches that rank near the top in spin:

• Four-seam fastball: 2498.88 (seventh)
• Two-seam fastball: 2468.69 (first)
• Cutter: 2390.75 (seventh)
• Slider: 2779.35 (second)

When the ball leaves Richards’ hand, it’s got just a ton of spin to it, almost no matter what he’s throwing.
That sounds impressive. It is impressive. But so what—why, in other words, should you care about spin rate?

And then they tell you why.

Angels Notes: Garrett Richards moves closer to return - The Orange County Register

Good news for Angels fans.

Manager Mike Scioscia had said last week that the plan for Richards after Thursday’s game would be a regular season minor league game on Tuesday. If he pitches for Triple-A Salt Lake City, they are at Fresno on Tuesday.

After that, Richards could be ready to rejoin the Angels rotation. If he does, he would be eight months removed from knee surgery, which had an expected rehab time of six to nine months.

Garrett Richards of Los Angeles Angels won’t be ready by Opening Day, Mike Scioscia says - ESPN Los Angeles

It’s not going to be Opening Day, let’s put it that way,” Scioscia said Sunday. “He knows it, and it’s great that he’s not going to be able to rush it because our medical staff’s not going to let him. There’s a progression. He has to pass every plateau. It’s great that he’s going to shoot for being ready. He’s working very hard to be ready Opening Day, but he’s not going to be ready Opening Day.”

Richards and the Angels previously had hoped that the right-hander would be ready by the time their regular season starts on April 6 against the Seattle Mariners.
