Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 45

Undrafted out of Drury University (Springfield, Mo.), Richards spent two years pitching for the Gateway Grizzlies in the independent Frontier League before inking a deal with the Marlins in July 2016. He's since climbed quickly through the Minors, opening his first full professional campaign with Class A Advanced Jupiter, where he was a Florida State League All-Star, and reaching Double-A roughly a year after signing. He finished his first full professional season with 2.53 ERA and 158 strikeouts in 146 innings, earning Miami's Minor League pitcher of the year award.

Richards may pitch with a tick below average velocity, usually sitting 90-92 mph, but his fastball plays up because he creates a good downhill angle to the plate with a deceptive delivery and locates it well. His changeup is above average, features good velocity separation and is effective against hitters on both sides of the plate. A fringy curveball gives Richards a third pitch that club officials say improved in his first full season.

Richards gets the most out of his three-pitch mix because he's a consistent strike-thrower who has feel for changing speeds and keeping hitters off balance. And while his stuff may not be overpowering, it hasn't stopped the right-hander from piling up his share of whiffs early in his pro career. He profiles as a back-of-the-rotation starter or a long reliever.
