Garrett Richards (SP, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Aaron Schooler - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Although near the bottom of the salary scale, Richards has the best stuff and potential on the Angels staff, and Richards is just starting to realize some of this immense potential.  He possesses a fastball that can hit upper 90’s with good movement and backs it up with a knee buckling 12-6 curve that disappears into the dirt.  Richards possesses a great ground ball rate and is finally striking hitters away at the rate we thought he'd be able to for a while.  Richards will not remain a secret for long after dueling Tanaka and the Yankees on Sunday.  It was clear that he was giving the Bronx Bombers all they could handle and then some.  The only blemish for Richards on the young season has been walks, but that should not be enough to scare fantasy owners away and his walks should come under control soon enough.
