Report: SP Garrett Richards Agrees to One-Year Contract with Angels

Rob Carr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The Los Angeles Angels agreed to a one-year, $3.2 million deal with starting pitcher Garrett Richards on Saturday, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.

The Angels avoid salary arbitration with the 26-year-old Richards by coming to a compromise. Richards asked for $3.8 million while the Angels offered $2.4 million before settling on a deal.

Richards was having a career season last year before tearing his patellar tendon in his left knee, ending his season at the end of August. Richards had surgery on the knee and is expected to be ready for opening day.

Richards was in the race for the American League Cy Young award last season, before the injury. He pitched 168 2/3 innings, compiling a 13-4 record, 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164 strikeouts.
