14 434 Atlanta Braves Richie Tate RHP Ark.
Another high school righthander who popped up late in the spring is Richie Tate, who also didn't get seen by many clubs. He can run his fastball up to 93 mph, and while his delivery needs work, he has good body control for a 6-foot-6, 230-pounder. His secondary pitches and control also need refinement. Committed to Connors State (Okla.), Tate should be signable if he goes in the first 10 rounds.
