Trevor Richards Scouting Report
Trevor Richards will make his 11th career start. He has a 5.06 ERA and 3.90 FIP through his first 48.0 major league innings. He’s had a problem with a walk rate (about 10%), even though he typically posted a number half that in the minors. In his last start, he allowed three runs in 4.0 innings to the Diamondbacks.
His pitcher repertoire, per Brooks Baseball
in 2018, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2018, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (92mph) and Change (84mph), also mixing in a Curve (81mph).
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ fourseamers. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers’ changeups and has some natural sink to it. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers’ curves, has little depth and is slightly harder than usual.
