08/04/2013 - College PREP - Columbus, OH Connor Richardson is a 6'1"/175 lbs SS that will graduate in 2016. At short, he gets around the ball creating momentum to throw. He shows soft hands and is clean with his double play feeds. Working on his arm strength and becoming more fluid with the glove on backhands will make him a more complete defender. At the plate, he has good rhythm, is quiet to launch, and has a middle approach. Keeping his head down the center of his body will increase balance and barrel accuracy. Overall, Connor projects in the middle infield with a couple more years to improve his game.
