The pitching-starved Padres sent Richard to the hill every five days, where he recorded a 4.79 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 32 starts, spanning 197.1 innings. The silver lining is Richard's ratios were slightly inflated by a .353 BABIP, unusually high even for a groundball specialist. His 4.23 FIP and 3.76 xFIP are a better reflection of his skills. The veteran lefty features a 91-mph fastball along with a slider and change. A 17.7 percent strikeout rate indicates he doesn't miss many bats, preferring to induce grounders, which he did 59 percent of the time. The Padres must be hopeful Richard pitches more to his expected ERAs as they inked him to a two-year extension in September, with intentions on keeping him in the rotation for at least this season. With Petco Park at his back, Richard is a viable spot starter in mixed leagues with deep benches, but be ready to cut bait if he struggles as there's no upside worth waiting for.
