Padres | Clayton Richard lost weight
Mon, 06 May 2013 16:06:00 -0700

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.
