  • Richards (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Rangers fell to Atlanta 6-3, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk in an inning of work. Getting the nod as the opener, Richards served up a two-run shot to Austin Riley, and Texas was never able to climb out of the early hole. The 33-year-old righty has had a shaky start to the season that includes a 16.2 percent walk rate in nine innings, and Richards should remain in a low-leverage role until he begins to turn things around.

  • Richards will serve as the opener ahead of primary pitcher Spencer Howard during Friday's game against Atlanta, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports. Richards has struck out seven in seven scoreless innings over his last five appearances, and he'll work as an opener for the second time in his last three outings. He pitched two innings as an opener against the Athletics on Sunday and figures to have a similar workload Friday.

  • Richards struck out one in two scoreless innings, allowing two hits and a walk in a 2-0 loss Sunday in Oakland. He did not factor into the decision. Richards allowed consecutive singles to start the game and worked his way out of trouble with a flyout and a double-play ball. In the second, he pitched around a two-out walk. The veteran is no stranger to starting but Sunday's appearance was planned as an opener with Spencer Howard receiving the bulk of the innings. After allowing two runs in his first appearance, the righty has pitched five consecutive scoreless frames.

  • Richards will be the opener for Sunday's game against Oakland. Being the first pitcher on the mound should be no problem for Richards, who's started 150 major-league games. He won't pitch very deep in this one, however, as he's topped out at one inning in his four relief appearances this season. Spencer Howard (finger) is expected to follow him out of the bullpen.

  • Richards allowed two runs on two hits and two walks over one inning in Thursday's 10-5 win over the Angels. Richards, who began the season on the injured list with a blister, was activated Thursday and put immediately to work in a low-stress situation. He allowed a two-run home run to Max Stassi. Richards is expected to be a multi-inning reliever and has the potential to move into the rotation at some point, having made 150 career starts.
