ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Angels ace Garrett Richards is expected to need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right elbow, sidelining him into next season, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team wasn't expected to make an announcement on Richards' condition until later Friday.

Yahoo Sports first reported the apparently serious blow to the Angels, who have four potential starters sidelined in various stages of recovery from arm injuries.
