Padres' Clayton Richard: Finishes season on ugly note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (8-15) gave up eight runs -- six earned -- on eight hits and three walks while striking out seven in Wednesday's 10-0 loss to the Dodgers.

He'd turned in two scoreless outings in his last three starts coming in, but Richard can't be expected to post elite results with any consistency. The veteran lefty's final 2017 start leaves him with a 4.79 ERA and 1.52 WHIP on the season -- ugly marks for fantasy purposes that don't come close to being compensated for by his modest improvement in strikeout rate.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Validates contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (8-14) shutout the Rockies over 7.1 innings, allowing seven hits and a walk while striking out eight and earning the win Thursday.

Richard received a two-year contract extension Wednesday, and he rewarded the Padres' decision with one of his finest outings of the season. The veteran southpaw maintained his excellent 3.5 GB/FB ratio with 12 groundballs Thursday. Richard has been coming on strong lately, tossing three quality starts over his last four outings. The 33-year-old has some deep-league streaming appeal for his final start of the season next Wednesday against the Dodgers, who he held to three runs over six innings in their previous meeting Sept. 2.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Extended through 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard agreed to an extension Wednesday that will keep him with the Padres through the 2019 season, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He would have been a free agent after the season, but the Padres wanted to secure some starting pitching depth, particularly for 2018. The terms of the contract are undisclosed. Richard has a 4.82 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and just 136 strikeouts in 185 innings, so this extension is more about quantity of innings than quality. The Padres are loaded with pitching down on the farm, so Richard should transition to a bullpen role before the end of his contract.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Falls to Rockies on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-14) took the loss against the Rockies on Friday, giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings while striking out three.

All four runs scored in the second inning, after which the veteran lefty settled down and gave the Padres a chance to come back -- a chance their sluggish offense squandered in a 6-1 defeat. Richard's 5.04 ERA and 1.56 WHIP since the All-Star break are unappealing fantasy numbers, and he'll be a risky play in his next start Wednesday at home against the Diamondbacks.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Blanks Cardinals over six for seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-13) earned the win over the Cardinals on Thursday, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out five over six scoreless innings.

He continues to live up to his reputation as a groundball specialist -- Richard has a top-three groundball rate among qualified starters -- inducing nine groundouts in this one. The lefty doesn't miss bats at a high clip and thus remains prone to the occasional hiccup when balls in play don't go his way, but Richard has appeal in certain home matchups.
