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.

Pitcher Clayton Richard hoping for revival with Pirates in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Clayton Richard isn't a lock to make the team for opening day. As a non-roster invite to spring training, Richard is looking to turn some heads and find himself on the roster in a month, reports MLB.com.

"It felt good, strong. The main thing now is repeating my delivery, and I think I was able to do that with the fastball," Richard said after racking up four strikeouts in a two-inning "B" game stint on Monday."

Manager Clint Hurdle likes what he's seen from Richard early on.

"He looked good. He's getting comfortable with the adjustments in his mechanics," said Hurdle, who took in the "B" game at Pirate City in person. "He repeated his delivery, and his velocity even picked up as he went on. A very good outing."

Pirates' Clayton Richard working on changing bad delivery habits
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Clayton Richard is working with the club to correct his delivery, according to MLB.com. The 31-year-old left-hander picked up some "bad habits" in his delivery while working his way back from a shoulder injury. He's working with pitching coach Ray Searage and special assistant Jim Benedict to correct his mistakes.

"It kind of comes piece by piece, because it's a lot easier said than done," Richard said. "You think, 'Just let it go.' But there's habits that I've created for so many years trying to protect the pain that it just takes repetitions and adjustments to get back to normal.

"I'm going to have to take care of what I can take care of and make my adjustments and be a better pitcher every day," he said. "Where that takes us, I don't know -- and I'm not going to worry about where that takes us."
