Player Notes
Garrett Richards underwent successful surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee Friday.

Advice: Richards is done for the season. He'll look to be ready for the beginning of the 2015 season, but with a six to nine month recovery period it's no guarantee.

Angels placed RHP Garrett Richards on the 60-day disabled list with a torn left patellar tendon.

Advice: Thursday's MRI results on Richards' knee revealed a torn patellar tendon. This was the worst case scenario, but it was also expected. Richards was shaken to the core after the gruesome injury -- suffered when he attempted to cover second base on Wednesday and his knee gave out -- and you can understand why: Richards was a darkhorse Cy Young candidate, entering Wednesday's start 13-4 with a 2.53 ERA, collecting 164 strikeouts in 167 innings. "Surgery is tentatively scheduled for next week," the Angels twitter feed passes along. "Richards is anticipated to miss 6 to 9 months."

Garrett Richards suffered a left knee patellar injury in Wednesday's game.

Advice: Richards was running to cover first base in the second inning when his left knee gave out. He had to be placed on a stretcher and carted off the field. While the Angels haven't given any idea as to his timetable, the right-hander is likely done for the year.

Garrett Richards left Wednesday's start against the Red Sox with a potentially serious right knee injury.

Advice: Richards was covering first base when his knee buckled, and he remained on the ground for several minutes. He was eventually carted off the field, an ominous sign. Richards had allowed five hits and two runs in his 1 2/3 innings of work before exiting. The Angels should update his status soon, but it would be a devastating blow if he's lost for a substantial period of time.
