2022 Player Outlook

Injuries have hampered Richards' career, and his most productive outings last year came as a reliever. Texas will be best suited to let him work out of the pen in 2022, as his 3.42 ERA as a reliever was far better than his 5.22 ERA as a starter. Beyond that, as a reliever, he posted a 24.8 percent strikeout rate, and 2.90 FIP. Sure, he can make a spot start if needed, but Texas would be wise to use him as a reliever. In a perfect world, he builds upon last year's success as a reliever and reduces the insane amount of hard contact he endured.
