Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Set to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (knee) will resume throwing over the weekend, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Richard remains on schedule, as he was expected to be shut down for two weeks when he was placed on the injured list on April 1. He'll likely still need a few weeks to build back up after he resumes throwing.

Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Officially hits IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

This comes as no surprise, as Richard was recently shut down from throwing for the next two weeks due to a stress reaction in his right knee. Sean Reid-Foley was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move and is expected to fill in for Richard in the rotation for the time being.

Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Shut down two weeks with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard has a stress reaction in his right knee and will be shut down from throwing for at least two weeks, John Lott of The Athletic reports.

Richard will still have to build back up following the two-week shutdown, so it could be at least a month before he's back in game action. Sean Reid-Foley will start in his place Monday against the Orioles and will likely remain in the rotation until Richard returns.

Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Whiffs six Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard gave up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

The veteran southpaw is ticketed for a rotation spot to begin the year, and Richard has put together a solid spring with a 9:3 K:BB through 10.2 innings. After a couple of rough seasons with the Padres, however, he'll need to produce out of the gate if he wants to avoid shifting into a long relief role once Clay Buchholz (elbow) is up to speed.

Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Tabbed as no. 4 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Ross Atkins said that Richard is assured a spot in the Blue Jays' starting rotation to begin the season, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The veteran lefty struggled mightily in 2018, posting a 5.33 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP in 27 starts before undergoing surgeries on both knees in September. Despite the lack of results, Richard's experience seems to be winning out in the race for the final spots in the rotation. Even with a rotation spot in hand, however, his poor showing in 2018 and low strikeout upside keeps him from being a viable fantasy asset until he can prove otherwise.
