Drafted in the 12th round (376th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2010 (signed for $195,000)
Louisville should have six hitters selected in the draft, and the one with the most potential missed most of the season. Outfielder Richmond injured his left hand when hit by a pitch in April 2009 and eventually had surgery last winter. A circulation problem kept his hand from healing properly, and he reinjured it diving for a ball in February and missed 41 games. He's a 6-foot-2, 205-pounder with the swing and strength to hit for average and power once he improves his pitch recognition. His best tool is his strong arm, and his slightly above-average speed may allow him to play center field in pro ball. If healthy, Richmond might have gone as high as the third round. Now it's likely that whichever team drafts him will monitor his health in summer ball before signing him.
