Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is likely to miss the rest of the season with what is believed to be a torn patellar tendon in his left knee. If he requires surgery, as expected, he'll have a six-month recovery window.
Fantasy Tip: Wade LeBlanc and Randy Wolf are possibilities to replace him in the Halos' rotation. LeBlanc has a 4.00 ERA and 1.38 WHIP at AAA, but he has 116 K's in 123 2/3 innings. He'd be a decent AL-only add, whereas Wolf would serve as AL roster depth.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (leg, knee) suffered an apparent left knee or leg injury while covering first base in the bottom of the second inning against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, Aug. 20. He was down for several minutes before being taken off on a stretcher.
Fantasy Tip: It certainly looked serious, and looked similar to the injury Tim Hudson suffered a couple of years ago when he was a member of the Atlanta Braves. Fantasy owners hold your breath that this is not a season-ending injury, and everyone keep your fingers crossed for Richards' well-being.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards won't be shut down after a specific innings limit. "Not at all," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday. "Garrett has thrown from end to end in a season. His innings have not escalated to the point where they're 200-plus, but Garrett throws the ball as easily as anybody you'll ever see. It's not a violent delivery, it's not a violent package. He maintains velocity pretty easily."
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for his owners as he remains a valuable starter for the rest of the season, but beware that he may tire physically along with experiencing a somewhat negative statistical correction.
