And other than Bauer that's 2 guys with big injury potential, Smyly who other than his 26 innings last year hasn't been a good pitcher in 6 years, and a 37 year old MortonWorth noting that of this winter's free agent class of starting pitchers, Richards is going to be paid the 5th highest AAV of the group.
