WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Former McCutcheon Maverick and current San Diego Padre Clayton Richard is on the 60-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury. That's the bad news, the good news is he's home and joined us in studio Wednesday night.
The injury occurred against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 21, as Richard threw a ball to Dodgers leadoff hitter Mark Ellis and then a strike on his second pitch before leaving the game. The second pitch registered as an 86-mph changeup.
Richard was met near the first-base line by manager Bud Black before he left for the home clubhouse. On News 18 at 6, Richard talked about how he initially had some issues with the shoulder in his previous start so the injury injury wasn't a complete surprise.
The AC joint is located where the shoulder and clavicle meet.
The good news is that an MRI showed no damage to the AC joint in Richard's shoulder. Given the timing of the surgery, though, there won't be room for rest and rehabilitation in time for him to return during the regular season.
Richard finishes the year with a 2-5 record and a 7.01 ERA in 12 games, including 11 starts.
