Drafted in the 17th round (513th overall) by the New York Yankees in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
A draft-eligible sophomore who turns 21 in July, Richardson was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team in 2019 after hitting .264/.335/.491 with nine home runs and eight doubles. Richardson has a solid all-around toolset with impressive power production. He was poised for a breakout 2020 season as a sophomore, after hitting .424/.453/.797 with five home runs, two triples and three doubles through just 14 games. That power production has come with some swing and miss, as Richardson struck out 16 times compared to just four walks this spring. Richardson has handled center field for Indiana, where he’s shown a tendency to make highlight plays, though he could be pushed to a corner at the next level. Richardson is intriguing if teams buy into his production over the first 60 games of his collegiate career, but he could also be a tough sign as an eligible sophomore.
