    Lyon "I'm not Lyon, you're Lyon" Richardson- Reds 2018 2nd pick



    https://www.tcpalm.com/story/sports/...aft/662335002/

    MLB Pipeline ranks Lyon Richardson as the 67th best prospect in the draft and anticipates he could get picked in the second or third round. Bennett Richardson said several teams have expressed interest in his son, but declined to get into specifics.
    While the draft is a complete unknown, what’s easier to pinpoint is why scouts like him so much. Jensen Beach typically had 15 to 20 scouts at each of Lyon Richardson’s starts this season.

    At a preseason classic in Merritt Island, which included Lyon Richardson and Merritt Island right-hander Mason Denaburg, a likely first-round pick, more than 100 scouts were in attendance.

    Lyon Richardson, who signed with the University of Florida, is a 6-foot-2, 185-pounder with an athletic build and a plus-fastball that sits in the mid-90s. He’s touched 98 on the radar gun. He also has an impressive breaking ball and changeup.


    “His first pitch against us was 97,” South Fork coach Tony Malizia said. “It’s just like, ‘My gosh!’ It’s hard to do a lot with 97. He was tough. It’s hard to simulate that. You can set the pitching machine up and move the plate up in the batting cages, but it’s different when you go out there and see it. He’s one of those special kids.”

    Lyon Richardson was TCPalm’s All-Area Player of the Year this past season when he posted a 7-0 record with a 0.58 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 48 innings. He allowed only 16 hits this past season.
    Lets make him roar!

    Maybe we can call him The Professional.

    From the Kiley McDaniel chat over at Fangraphs: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/kile...at-6-6-18/1:32

    "Mountie Votto: Can you tell me a little more about Josiah Gray and Lyon Richardson, the two low-mileage arms the Reds nabbed? From what I understand, both are pretty new to pitching and there could be some upside there

    1:33
    Kiley McDaniel: Josiah was a D2 conversion guy that’s loose and has arm speed but is pretty rough and looks like a reliever to us. Lyon was a two way guy, good ath, but kinda maxed out, some don’t love the arm action, but up to 96, 55 SL, starter look. assuming Josiah was below slot to make room for Siani."

    Another guy who has rebounded after a pretty rough start to his season. After struggling his first 10 starts he's come around in the month of June.

    4 starts, 20 innings, 17ks, 7 walks, and a 1.74 ERA.

    K/9 up to 8.0 on the season. Lyon making his opponents feel his roar of late.

    I do wonder where the extra velocity he had in high school has gone to though (he's more low 90s at the moment), hopefully it reemerges over time.
    “I don’t care,” Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. “He’s in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.”

    I'll throw this out for discussion. Is it possible that the Reds are holding back on the high 90's FB in favor of movement and development of other pitches that lead to being a successful starter? After all, he is still very young and the Greene experience might be on their minds.

    2018 2nd Round pick, Lyon Richardson

    Maybe I missed it, but I could not find a single thread dedicated to this 19-year old going back all the way since before the 2018 draft.

    Dozens of worse prospects have their own threads, and as desperate as the REDS are to find Starting Pitchers among their Minor League teams, this young man needs to be spoken about more often than he has been around here.

    Looked again after I posted and found this buried before Summer began.

    Guess this thread can be deleted mods since I found the other one.
