Scouting Report on Richer
Ryan Richer C (Horseheads HS, NY 2015)
Richer stands 5-foot-10 175-pounds and has nice footwork behind the plate with a quick release and 2.28 pop time. His velocity is average at 76 mph but accurate, he needs more time behind the dish to receive more comfortable. With the bat Richer wraps some on his load but gets inside the ball nice. His exit velocity is 84 mph showing signs of some pop. He shows a short stride and some balance in his approach.

Richer can definitely swing it. He shows a next level bat with some power potential. He is relatively new to the catching position, so I think with more work he will smooth out and be a solid catcher. He works hard and is a smart kid, this upcoming season will be big for him. We are excited to follow his progress.
