Source: Rangers To Sign Garrett Richards


SURPRISE, Ariz. The Texas Rangers have added another veteran arm to the pitching staff. The Rangers agreed to terms on a Major League contract with veteran right-hander Garrett Richards, a source confirmed with InsideTheRangers. The 40-man roster was filled with the official announcement of the Brad Miller signing, so a subsequent roster move will be needed to make room for Richards once he passes his physical and the deal is made official. Richards, 33, is coming off a year where he struggled as a starter but later found success out of the bullpen. The former Los Angeles Angel has typically been a starter throughout his career and had some successful years in that role. However, he put up a 5. 22 ERA and 1. 65 WHIP in 22 starts for the Boston Red Sox last year and was moved to the bullpen. John E.

His strikeouts per nine innings also shot up from 7. 1 as a starter to 9. 6 as a reliever. Given his history as a starter and recent success out of the bullpen, he is expected to fill a multi-inning relief role for the Rangers.

The Oklahoma product also missed the majority of 2017 with a nerve issue in his right biceps. Ultimately, Richards underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2018, which sidelined him for the rest of that season and most of 2019. A relief role might be the change Richards needs at this point in his career. The move also gives the club another veteran arm to help set an example for a very young pitching staff .
