Padres’ Richard to have surgery on both knees

While the Padres announced Richard was placed on the disabled list with left knee inflammation and Green later confirmed surgery on that knee that will end Richard’s season, two sources said Richard is actually going to undergo two surgeries in the next few weeks to clean up lingering issues (bone spurs, rough cartilage and possibly more). Richard, 34, has been affected by the issues since late April and has had surgeries on both knees in past years.

One source said Richard was still reluctant to have the procedures because he didn’t want to be seen as giving up on his team.

Clayton seems like a good guy but his team has already been given up on. They are 51-83 and he personally has the worst stats of any starter in the league because he’s started 27 games with inflammation in both knees. A true innings-eater.

Now their rotation may be entirely rookies, with Tyson Ross gone to the Cardinals on waivers.

No one wants to talk about Clayton Richard? Really?!

The Padres rotation now consists of four rookies and one Robbie Erlin who you may have also assumed is a rookie.
