Not a Rookie: Clayton Richard

10

Richard has looked pretty solid this year for the White Sox. Fangraphs has his fastball at an average of 91.6 MPH, slightly faster than last year's 90 MPH mark and the best heater he's shown since college. I don't think he's going to have a spectacular career, but as long as he remains healthy, his ability to throw sinkers for strikes should keep him employed for a long time. He also strikes me as the type of pitcher who could get everything clicking, unexpectedly have an outstanding season and win 18 games at some point (2011?) before falling back to Earth.
