Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Acquired by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard was traded from the Padres to the Blue Jays on Sunday in exchange for Connor Panas and cash considerations.

Richard was designated for assignment by San Diego back on Dec. 20, but the 35-year-old will ultimately land on his feet after catching on with another organization 10 days later. The lefty's best asset is likely experience at this point, as he's coming off a 2018 campaign that would be best forgotten. In 27 games started for the Padres last season, Richard posted a 5.33 ERA and 1.46 WHIP, both regressions from his 2017 marks, and likely not enough to keep him rostered in most standard formats.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (knee) was designated for assignment by the Padres on Thursday.

The Padres needed to free up a roster spot for the signing of Ian Kinsler, and the 35-year-old Richard was the corresponding roster casualty. While he pitched for San Diego on Opening Day in 2018, Richard struggled to a 5.33 ERA and 108:60 K:BB across 27 starts (158.2 innings). The veteran southpaw underwent season-ending surgery on both knees in August, but is expected to be back to full health for spring training. Richard may find work elsewhere given his extensive big-leagues experience, but his best days appear to be behind him (5.03 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over the past two seasons combined).

Padres' Clayton Richard: Moved to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (knee) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Richard will undergo a pair of procedures over the next couple weeks after being placed on the DL on Tuesday with a knee injury. This move won't impact Richard's timetable, as he will remain sidelined for the rest of the 2018 campaign.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Goes eight strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard tossed eight innings of two-run ball while giving up four hits and striking out two Monday. He did not factor in the decision in a 6-3 loss to the Angels.

Richard tied his season-high for innings pitched, completing eight frames for the third time this season. The veteran southpaw has been an innings eater in every sense of the word, reaching 25 starts for the second consecutive season despite posting lackluster totals in ERA (4.98), WHIP (1.33) and strikeout rate (6.1 K/9). Richard does own a 3.59 ERA at home this season, but fantasy owners should be wary of his next start against a tough Arizona lineup Saturday, even though it comes at Petco Park.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Allows five runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard allowed five runs on seven hits in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday, striking out three and walking two in five innings.

Richard gave up a couple two-run homers in the first inning but was able to settle down thereafter, throwing 84 pitches (51 for strikes) on the evening. Richard hasn't registered a win in his last eight starts and now carries a 5.13 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. The lefty has a 100:58 K:BB in 142 innings this season and will look to get into the win column in his next start at home against the Phillies.
