Padres' Clayton Richard: Drilled by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-9) took the loss Friday, coughing up seven runs on four hits and four walks over three innings while striking out three.

The left-hander began the second half with his worst start of the season, as he threw 33 of 60 pitches for strikes before getting the early hook. Richard will carry a 4.82 ERA into his next outing Wednesday on the road against the Mets.

Padres' Clayton Richard: No-decision in shaky start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard pitched five innings Sunday, yielding three runs on five hits and four walks in a 4-3 win over Arizona. He struck out two batters in the no-decision.

Richard raised his ERA to 4.50 in 118 innings this season. Luckily, San Diego's bullpen came in and threw 11 shutout innings in the 16-inning win, giving Richard the no-decision. The 34-year-old owns an 88:42 K:BB, but he's walked nine batters in his last two outings. Richard will face the Cubs on Friday.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Walks five in loss to A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-8) allowed five runs on six hits in a loss to the A's on Tuesday, striking out two and walking five in six innings.

Richard was pitching a shutout until the sixth inning but then allowed two walks and four hits in the inning as the A's put up a five-spot. Despite the five walks Richard still managed to be relatively efficient, throwing 83 pitches (51 for strikes) across six innings. Although the lefty's 4.46 ERA is a bit pedestrian, he's sporting a decent 1.27 WHIP while holding batters to a .246 average. His next start will be against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Surrenders five doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-7) allowed four runs on 10 hits and a walk with three strikeouts through seven innings in a loss Wednesday against the Rangers.

Richards failed to record a quality start for the first time in six starts as the Padres got to him for five doubles among their 10 hits. He has been able to use his fastball to generate groundballs despite its lack of velocity (89.8 average mph Wednesday night), but he couldn't sneak it past Texas, as eight of the 22 fastballs the Padres put in play went for hits (.364 average). Still, Richards has been showing remarkable endurance in 2018, as he has now completed the sixth inning in 10 straight starts and completed the seventh in seven of those 10. Despite it all, Richard will carry a 4.29 ERA into his next start Wednesday against Oakland.

Padres' Clayton Richard: Picks up fourth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (7-6) got the win against the Giants on Friday, giving up two runs on three hits over six innings, striking out four and walking none in the Padres' 6-2 victory.

Richard still sports a 4.23 ERA following this strong start, but that doesn't tell the story of how well he's been pitching lately. The left-hander has a 2.77 ERA over his four outings in June, all of which have been wins and quality starts. In fact, Richard has now thrown quality starts in seven of his last eight outings dating back to May 8. It's hard to say how long he'll continue to provide returns like this considering he's 34 years old and, given his lengthy track record, it seems likely he won't substantially deviate from his career ERA of 4.32. For the moment, however, Richard is throwing enough innings and posting solid enough ratios to move the fantasy needle.
