Player Notes
Clayton Richard pitched well with a big lead in Saturday's win over the Marlins, tossing 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball.

Advice: Richard did surrender eight hits, but only two runs came in to score--one of which came on a Kris Bryant error in the fourth inning. It certainly helped that the Cubs jumped out to a 7-0 lead after two innings. Overall, he struck out four and walked one while picking up his first win with the Cubs since coming over from the Pirates' minor league system on July 3. Richard last pitched in the bigs back in 2013.

Sat, Jul 4 Rotoworld
Cubs acquired LHP Clayton Richard from the Pirates in exchange for cash considerations; purchased his contract from Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: Richard could have opted out of his deal, but instead the Pirates will get a little money to move him elsewhere. The veteran left-hander will start on Saturday versus the Marlins, as the Cubs have sent down Donn Roach. Richard hasn't pitched in the majors since 2013 but has had a nice year at Triple-A Indianapolis, posting a 2.09 ERA over nine starts. He struck out just 25 over 56 innings.
