01/16/2009 - Under Armour Preseason All America - 2009 Richard continues to show steady improvement in his baseball abilities. Arm strength has improved in the infield, displaying life, carry, and accuracy across the diamond. Hitting abilities have also improved now showing near above average abilities. Hands are quick and direct, generating bat speed. He keeps hands inside the ball, utilizing the entire field and has some strength in his swing. He was 2 for 5 with a 2B and 3B at the event. Brady does show some projection on the mound with a solid body. Fastball shows sinking action with solid angles to hitters. He did not throw any off speed pitches but did get outs moving his fastball in and out. Richard will be a solid player at the next level and although he currently shows best at 1B, he does have potential on the mound.
