RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Richards was in the mix for the AL Cy Young in 2014 before a season-ending knee injury, but he posted a pedestrian 7.6 K/9 rate in 2015 along with a 3.3 BB/9 rate, leading to a 3.65 ERA in 207.1 innings following his return in late April. In attempting to discover what led to the decline in effectiveness, we can see that Richards' HR/FB rate tripled (4.0 percent to 12.0 percent), while his fastball and slider weren't nearly as effective according to runs above average. Despite this, his swinging strike percentage and first strike percentage both showed a slight increase, which could mean the strikeouts will head back up in 2016. Richards was unquestionably a disappointment for those who paid the price following the breakout, but could return to a value pickup in the middle rounds, as he will head into 2016 completely healthy.

2015

Richards was well on his way to completing the breakout campaign owners were hoping for before a rather innocuous looking cover play at first base in a game against the Red Sox in August led to a torn patellar tendon for the 26-year-old, sidelining him for the rest of the season. Prior to the injury, Richards had tallied a 2.61 ERA with 164 strikeouts in 168.2 innings. There was no dramatic change in Richards' pitch profile last season, but the hard-throwing righty managed to gain velocity on his fastball, which was clocked at an average of 96.3 mph. He also was stingy with the home run ball, allowing just five homers all of last season. The Angels are hopeful that Richards will be ready for spring training after initially giving him a six-to-nine month timetable for his return, but there may be a question of whether he can repeat his 2014 performance after the injury.

2014

Richards had something of an eventful 2013, as he began the year as a long reliever, was moved to the starting rotation twice, and even picked up a save on the season. Though he was initially replaced by Jerome Williams in the rotation after he struggled in late April and early May, Richards received his second chance after Joe Blanton was removed from the rotation. Richards flourished the second time around, pitching to an ERA of 3.59 after the All-Star break, with a 2.8 BB/9 during that time. Though his composite numbers are not very impressive, Richards' performance down the stretch compelled general manager Jerry Dipoto to bestow upon him a rotation spot in 2014 before the end of last season, but in order to be more than a true fourth or fifth starter, the hard-throwing 25-year-old will have to get back to the strikeout numbers he posted in the lower levels of the Angels' minor league system.

2013

Richards started nine games for the Angels last season and made 21 appearances out of the bullpen, compiling a 4.69 ERA and 47:34 K:BB over 71 innings. He was considered to be the best pitching prospect in the organization at one point, but it may be time to re-evaluate that given his low strikeout rates in the major leagues and upper levels of the minors. Despite the worrisome numbers, one also has to consider how quickly Richards has been rushed through the Angels' system, tossing just 143 innings at Double-A and 77 innings at Triple-A. Richards is likely to begin the season at Triple-A after the Angels acquired several veteran starters, but he should be the first pitcher called up if there's an opening.

2012

A big 2011 season established Richards as the Angels' top pitching prospect. Richards went 12-2 with a 3.15 ERA and 103:40 K:BB ratio in 22 games, including 21 starts, with Double-A Arkansas. Richards will likely open 2012 with Triple-A Salt Lake. He will be challenged in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, but with four pitches in his arsenal, expect him to be up to the task.

2011

Richards followed up a strong rookie season by striking out 149 batters and walking just 43 in 143 minor league innings last season. Richards is still a few years away from the big leagues, but he has top-of-the-rotation stuff with a four-pitch repertoire that includes a mid-90s fastball, two breaking pitches and a developing changeup. He may be the Angels' top pitching prospect heading into the 2011 season.
