Drafted in the 16th round (495th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2012
Listed at 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, Richardson is closer to 5-foot-6, according to scouts and opposing coaches. They also agree he's a better player than the last two times he was drafted, out of high school by the Twins (11th round, 2009) and last year as an eligible sophomore (31st round, Cubs). Richardson remains athletic and has improved his skills, drawing more walks and ranking second in the nation with 30 HBPs. He's a 60 runner but remains a less-than-efficient basestealer. Defensively, he can stick in center field with arm strength and average range. He's added strength and is less of a slap-and-dash hitter than he was previously.
