    • Cubs' Clayton Richard: Avoids arbitration with Cubs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Richard signed a one-year contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Four months ago Richard was designated for assignment by the Cubs, but he returned to post 2.96 ERA over the final two months of the regular season, then made six scoreless appearances during the team's playoff run. Now under contract through 2016, Richard will likely open the year as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen.

    • Cubs relief pitcher Clayton Richard (4-2) picked up the victory in a 9-6 win over the Pirates on Thursday despite surrendering four hits and two earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. It's been an up-and-down month for the veteran reliever, with a little bit of everything mixed in over six appearances. Two games where he retired the only batter he faced are sandwiched between two others where Richard was unable to record an out. Additionally, over his most recent two trips to the mound, including Thursday, Richard has thrown a combined 90 pitches. The 32-year-old opened with a smooth and scoreless fifth Thursday before giving up two hits in the sixth and three in the seventh, including two ground-rule doubles. Although his performance was somewhat shaky, Richard has not surrendered a home run in 11 consecutive appearances and has only yielded a total of three over 39 innings pitched on the season.
