San Diego Padres SP Clayton Richard (illness) lost 12 pounds while dealing with an intestinal virus that he picked up around two weeks ago. "He's sick," manager Bud Black said. "He's getting a little better, then he sort of digresses, then he gets a little better. It's more than just how you get a virus, you throw up, you have diarrhea, two or three days later, you're a little weak, then you start gaining on it." Black thinks Richard's illness has affected his pitching. SP Tyson Ross will pitch out of the bullpen as the team will go with a four-man rotation with two off days in the next two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Richard can most likely be dropped in most mixed leagues. Don't lose sight of Ross in deep mixed leagues if he gets another shot at a starting rotation post later this year.

Assuming he is well enough, San Diego Padres SP Clayton Richard (illness) could make his next start against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, April 23. He would fill the slot in the rotation vacated by SP Tyson Ross (shoulder), who was recently placed on the disabled list. Richard was unable to make his scheduled start against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, April 20, after coming down with a stomach virus.

San Diego Padres SP Clayton Richard (illness) will not make his scheduled start Saturday, April 20, because of flu-like symptoms. SP Andrew Cashner will start in his place.

San Diego Padres SPs Edinson Volquez, Clayton Richard, Eric Stults and Jason Marquis make up the first four spots in the starting rotation, and SPs Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner (thumb) are believed to be battling it out for the final spot. The team won't need a fifth starter until April 6.
Fantasy Tip: Both Ross and Cashner could be quite productive in SD's five-man rotation. The team may decide to be cautious with Cashner as he comes off an unfortunate hunting accident, but they'd prefer not to send him to the bullpen because he has major upside as a starter. Cashner has much more upside as a high-strikeout pitching commodity and should be owned in more leagues than Ross.
