Padres' Clayton Richard: Goes distance in win over D-backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (3-5) allowed just one run on five hits with no walks in a complete game victory Sunday against the D-backs. He struck out six.

Richard gave up the opening run on a solo home run in the third inning, but he buckled down after that and allowed just four singles the rest of the way. He successfully pitched to contact, inducing 11 ground ball outs in addition to several weak fly outs, and he needed just 96 pitches to go the distance. Richard has turned in some excellent outings this season, but he has alternated good and bad starts virtually all year and owns an underwhelming 4.31 ERA even after Sunday's gem. He will face a difficult matchup with the Nationals in his next start Saturday.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Roughed up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (2-5) gave up six runs on 10 hits while striking out seven over six innings in a loss to Milwaukee.

Control wasn't an issue for Richard in this one, as he threw 70 of his 95 pitches for strikes without walking a batter. He was, however, inconsistent within the strike zone, elevating several pitches above Austin Hedges' low targets, resulting in hard contact (four doubles). If we go off his recent Jekyll and Hyde game log, the veteran's next start at home against the Diamondbacks should be a gem. Unfortunately, fantasy baseball isn't that easy to predict, so it would be best to leave Richard on the waiver wire until he shows more consistent success.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Solid in road start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard pitched seven innings Thursday, allowing one earned run on five hits and a walk in a loss to Texas. He struck out four in a no-decision.

This was easily Richard's best start since his first outing of the season, and would have been a victory if not for a bullpen failure. The 33-year-old southpaw entered the game with the second highest ground ball rate in the National League (62.2%), and it certainly helped him Thursday. Richard didn't allow a single baserunner to reach scoring position until a home run by Mike Napoli to lead off the eighth inning. Still, he will need to show more consistency before being recommended for fantasy purposes. He'll take the hill again Tuesday at home against Milwaukee.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Will have start moved up to Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard will start Thursday against the Rangers rather than Friday against the White Sox, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He'll flip spots in the rotation with Jhoulys Chacin, drawing a slightly less favorable matchup in the process. The Rangers own a .302 wOBA compared to the White Sox's .291 mark, and Richard will also have the misfortune of pitching on the road rather than at home, where he's done a better job of keeping the ball in the yard this season.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Gives up five Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (2-4) gave up five runs on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. He walked six and struck out five.

The veteran southpaw was unable to locate his fastball in this one, a criminal act for a pitcher who relies on control and weak contact to go deep in games. The six walks lowered Richard's K/BB ratio to 1.6 on the season, which does not bode well for his ERA when you factor in his unusually high (for him) 1.1 HR/9. His next start comes on the road against the Rangers, leaving the 33-year-old out of the conversation even as a deep-league fantasy option.
