10/14: Update On Angels Pitcher Garrett Richards

Updated: October 14, 2016

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Garrett Richards saw Dr. Yoon today for a checkup on his healing ligament, and the Halo received some good news today.

It seems strange to hear good injury news, but after a season plagued with significant injuries, one pitcher was able to avoid the fate that befell his teammates Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano, both of whom are expected to miss all of next season.

The Angels organization released a statement on the 28-year old pitcher today via social media.

Back in May, it appeared as though 2017 would be a lost season for Richards and the Angels. Now, after clearing this final hurdle with flying colors, the Angels have added an ace to their rotation before the offseason even started.
