Comeback Kid Clayton Richard shines for Cubs in Saturday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Clayton Richard hasn't vaulted himself into the Comeback Player of the Year conversation, but he certainly took an encouraging step forward Saturday night against Miami.

Richard pitched well in his first start with the Cubs, yielding two runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings to earn the victory. It marked his first major league start since June 2013.

He allowed at least one baserunner in every inning but the sixth, yet continued to pitch out of jams. He did retire the last six batters he faced.

Pirates' Hurdle on Richard: 'There's some confidence building'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Clayton Richard took the loss Thursday, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 7-5 defeat against the Braves.

"He has been making progress with each outing. It's been incremental progress," manager Clint Hurdle said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He's still fighting his way back and finding his way back. I think with each outing, there's some confidence building."

Richard owns an April 1 opt-out in his contract if he's not placed on the 40-man roster. He's delivered a 3.12 ERA and 7:2 K:BB ratio in 8 2/3 spring innings.
