Drafted in the 24th round (732nd overall) by the Baltimore OriolesĀ in 2012
Richards has been drafted twice before, first by the Marlins out of Long Beach's Wilson High and then by the Twins in the 18th round after his junior year at Fullerton. He elected to return for his senior year and had a modest regular season hitting .280 with a .787 OPS. Stocky at 6-foot, 200 pounds, Richards isn't flashy but makes solid contact at the plate and converts all the routine plays in the field. After showing surprising pop and leading the Big West Conference in home runs as a junior, Richards hit just four bombs as a senior, which scouts feel is more indicative of the player he will be. Richards' upside is limited to a utility infielder, but he is a solid all-around contributor with a long track record and will be an attractive senior sign for someone.
