      Angels' Garrett Richards: Avoids arbitration, signs $6.425 million contract with Angels

      Richards and the Angels have agreed to a one-year, $6.425 million contract Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Richards didn't compete for the AL Cy Young Award like he did in 2014, but his performance warranted a nice pay day nonetheless. Richards finished the season with a 15-12 record, a 3.65 ERA, and a 1.24 WHIP and will be a front-line starter for the Angels once again in 2016.

      Angels SP Garrett Richards finishes one out shy of complete game

      Angels starter Garrett Richards (14-11) surrendered five hits, two earned runs and four walks in 8 2/3 innings in a 5-2 victory over the Twins. He struck out seven. Richards turned in a gutsy performance in a key game for the AL wild-card-chasing Angels, throwing a season-high 122 pitches in his second longest outing of the season. It was also the 27-year-old's fourth quality start in his last five appearances. Richards still struggles with his control, as his 3.2 BB/9 rate demonstrates, but is undoubtedly one of the most important components of an Angels pitching staff spearheading the team's postseason push.
