Padres scratch Richard from start because of virus
Manager Bud Black says Richard began vomiting after he woke up Saturday morning and has no energy. Andrew Cashner was called upon to make a spot start after serving in long relief.
If he is healthy in a couple of days, Richard could return to the rotation on Tuesday to fill Tyson Ross' slot after the right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder after it popped out on his first major league hit Tuesday against the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw.
San Diego recalled right-hander Thad Weber from Triple-A Tucson to fill a bullpen spot.
