SAN DIEGO – The Padres entered the offseason to seek pitching assistance after the 2019 season and into the future.

According to the MLB Network insider, Jon Heyman, I have agreed to a deal with right-handed Garrett Richards for precisely this reason.

Richards, recovering from Tommy John's operation in July, is expected to receive a two-year deal from Padres for $ 1

5 million, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. The Padres have not yet confirmed the signing.

It is unclear whether Richards will be healthy enough to return from surgery in the 2019 season. However, the deal was clearly made with a view to 2020. The Padres have a plethora of young prospects, but their rotation remains wide open for the future, and they believe their window could open for trouble in the National League West in season # 20.

Richards has a 45-38 record and an ERA of 3.54 in eight MLB seasons, all spent with the Angels.
