WSC Birth Years: Clayton Richard

Card #39 - Clayton Richard

Born: September 12, 1983

Clayton experienced his growing pains in a White Sox uniform. He went back and forth between fifth starter and the bullpen. This split personality also showed up in his starting performances.

Richard would throw a gem one outing and get completely rocked in the next. This contributed to his being shifted back and forth between the rotation and the relief.

While still trying to find his footing, Clayton was traded to the San Diego Padres in the Jake Peavy deal. Once there, Richard seemed to settle into a groove. 2010 should be a career year for the Lafayette, Indiana native.
