Notes 
 If I didn't have more self control, I'd put Richards in my Top 100 overall players. I'm all in this year, and you should be, too. Health is the only issue for Richards throughout his career, and he has literally no reason not to throw as many innings as possible for the Padres this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Chirinos is another pitcher who would benefit more from a longer season with how the Rays use him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Chirinos' strikeout numbers won't help you, but his solid control allows him to limit the damage and keep his ERA and WHIP under control. He'll have a spot in the Rays' rotation once again, and is an unexciting, but fairly reliable option, for deeper and AL-only leagues.
