Padres' Clayton Richard: Walks five in no-decision
Richard didn't factor into the decision against the Cubs on Friday, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits over six innings. He struck out out four and walked five in San Diego's eventual 5-4 defeat.
Richard continues to eat up innings, as he he's gone at least five frames in each of his last 13 starts. While that work rate has been impressive despite his unremarkable 4.43 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, it should also be noted that this was the third straight start Richard has walked more batters than he's struck out, which is a bit of a concerning trend. At this point, he's probably better considered a viable streaming option against inviting matchups than as a reliable cog on a fantasy staff.
