    • Richards (elbow) underwent an evaluation and was asymptomatic but will rest for six more weeks, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. It appears that the stem-cell therapy Richards underwent in May is having a positive effect, and Richards's season may not actually be lost to Tommy John surgery as was once thought. He will likely need a long rehab assignment even if he is able to go after six more weeks of rest, however, so a late July or early August return is about as optimistic a prognosis as this news can allow.

    • Richards (elbow) has chosen not to undergo Tommy John surgery and instead will receive a platelet-rich plasma shot, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Richards choice to treat his UCL tear via a non-surgical route is similar to Andrew Heaney's rehab method as they will both receive platelet-rich plasma shots to expedite the healing process. While surgery remains on the table for the 27-year-old if the platelet treatment doesn't work out, it would reduce his shelf time to about two months compared to the entire season if it is successful.

    • Richards (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. The move is purely a procedural one, as Richards has all but been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a high-grade UCL tear. The Angels acquired Brendan Ryan via the Nationals earlier Tuesday, so he'll occupy the 40-man roster spot cleared by this move.

    • Angels' Garrett Richards: Placed on 15-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Richards was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to May 2 on Friday. Richards has been diagnosed with a high-grade UCL tear, and will seek a second opinion. Unfortunately, it seems that Tommy John surgery will be the most likely outcome. While he has only been placed on the 15-day DL, he will almost certainly miss the remainder of the season.

    • Richards has been diagnosed with a high-grade UCL tear, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. The right-hander will seek a second opinion, but Tommy John surgery seems inevitable, and given the reported severity of the tear, it's possible Richards' recovery could push well beyond the usual 12-month minimum. Cory Rasmus is starting in place of Richards on Friday in what figures to amount to a bullpen game for the Angels.
