|Clayton Richard's season ends with surgery |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/13) Padres starting pitcher Clayton Richard is set to undergo surgery on his left shoulder next week, ending his season after just 11 starts.
Though an MRI showed no damage to the AC joint in Richard's shoulder, he will still need to have surgery to shave down part of his left clavicle according to MLB.com. The surgery is expected to bring relief to Richard's shoulder joint, and should keep him from struggling with recurring issues moving forwad.
Richard is expected to be placed on the 60-disabled list Friday, opening room on the 40-man roster. He finishes the season with a 2-5 record and 7.01 ERA, and is expected to be ready for the start of next season.

|Clayton Richard hits the shelf |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/13) The Padres made a flurry of moves Saturday, most notably moving starting pitcher Clayton Richard to the 15-day disabled list.
Richard suffered a shoulder injury during the course of his Friday start against the Dodgers. He currently does not have a timeline for his possible return to the rotation.
Jaff Decker was optioned to Triple-A Tucson as well, while Anthony Bass and Brad Boxberger were recalled from the minors.
|Clayton Richard gave up eight runs (seven earned) in his first start for the Padres in 2013, and it served as a sign of things to come from the left-handed hurler. Richard had very few good starts last season, as he posted a career worsts in ERA (7.01) and WHIP (1.63). Richard was limited to 12 appearances last season because of an intestinal virus and shoulder injury, which ended his season in mid-July because he needed surgery on his pitching shoulder. Richard opted for free agency in the offseason, but he's going to have to prove healthy and productive before he gets another shot in the majors and in your Fantasy lineup. Richard can be left off Fantasy rosters on Draft Day.
