Garrett Richards loses his control in Wednesday's loss

Garrett Richards walked six while allowing four runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss versus the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Richards is now 0-2 with a 6.48 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP through four starts. He really struggled trying to find his release point in this one, and it led to all the free passes. The 32-year-old is lined up to face the Mets in his next start but as of now he isn't a fantasy option (even in the deepest of leagues).

Garrett Richards pitches five innings on Thursday afternoon

Garrett Richards allowed two unearned runs over five innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Richards had to gut this one out as he didn't have his best stuff this afternoon. He struck out four and walked two in the outing but still doesn't look like a reliable fantasy option right now.

Garrett Richards allows two runs on Saturday

Garrett Richards received a no-decision in Saturday's eventual win over the Orioles, allowing two runs on three hits over five innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Both runs came via solo homers -- each of which occurred in the first inning. From there, Richards settled in and was ultimately much better than he was in his first start last Sunday. Despite the improvement, fantasy managers should leave him on the bench for his next start against the Twins.

Garrett Richards hit hard in Sunday's matinee

Garrett Richards took the loss on Sunday against the Orioles, giving up six runs on seven hits over just two innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Not an ideal start to his tenure in Boston. Richards' biggest liability over the years has been his ability to stay healthy, so it's certainly discouraging to see him have such a brutal start to 2021. His next start comes against the Orioles again, but obviously he isn't a recommended streamer for that one.

Garrett Richards inks one-year deal with the Red Sox

RHP Garrett Richards signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Richards was linked to multiple teams on Friday, but signs a one-year deal with the Red Sox. He is expected to be in the middle of Boston’s rotation and gives the Red Sox much needed pitching help. Richards was effective in 2020, posting a 4.03 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 46:17 K:BB across 51 1/3 innings for the Padres.
