WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Richardson is a lefty who throws in the upper 80s at this point.  He has a change with good sink.

2010
DSL:  4-4-0, 5.68 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, 38 IP, 4.3 BB/9, 11.1 K/9 

Struggled in DSL debut, although he did strike out a lot.

2011
DSL:  0-1-0, 3.24 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, 8.1 IP, 8.6 BB/9, 6.5 K/9
R:  1-0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 8.2 IP, 4.2 BB/9, 4.2 K/9 

Richardson pitched briefly after the DSL started play, then moved to the GCL.  After pitching in only three games there, though, he went on the reserve list for unknown reasons.

Richardson won’t turn 20 until May 2012.  He has good stuff and hopefully will be ready to go.  It’s possible he could appear at State College at some point in the season.
