Player Notes
Cubs designated LHP Clayton Richard for assignment.

Advice: Richard gets the pink slip despite tossing six innings of one-run ball in a spot start Sunday. The reality is that the Cubs just don't have room for him following the acquisition of Dan Haren. He's earned his spot as a depth option, though, assuming he clears waivers.

Making a spot start against the Brewers on Sunday, Clayton Richard fired six innings of one-run ball.

Advice: Richard is only up for this start, as the Cubs needed a warm body in the rotation as they await the arrival of the recently acquired Dan Haren. He made the most of the opportunity, with the only run against him scoring on a Hernan Perez RBI ground out in the second inning. A return to Triple-A Iowa is imminent, but Richard could see additional spot duty depending on the future state of the Cub rotation. He holds a 4.29 ERA in 21 innings at the big league level this season.

Sun, Aug 2 Rotoworld
Cubs recalled LHP Clayton Richard from Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: He'll make a spot start Sunday before Dan Haren joins the rotation later this week. Richard holds a 5.40 ERA over 15 innings with the Cubs.

Sun, Aug 2 Rotoworld
Clayton Richard will start Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Advice: Richard won't be in the majors long as the Cubs are likely to option him back to Triple-A Iowa when Dan Haren joins the rotation sometime next week. Richard is 1-0 in three appearances for the Cubs this year with a disappointing 5.40 ERA.

Sat, Aug 1 Rotoworld
Cubs optioned LHP Clayton Richard to Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: Richard had to be designated for assignment earlier this week given his major league service time, but he had an option left so the Cubs are now using it after he cleared waivers. He'll stick around as depth.
