Prospect: Jason Richman
Position: Left-Handed Pitcher
Organization: Los Angeles Dodgers

May 2, 2018 — Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (High-A, California League)
Sidearm/submarine lefty with remarkably long arm action through the back; quirky arm angle look that’ll give LHH some trouble, but very little deception/ability to hide the ball beyond that; particularly susceptible to being hit by RHH; matchup arm out of the bullpen in short, specialized stints … Lively stuff across entire repertoire has ticked up a bit here in 2018, the third consecutive season I’ve seen him pitch; the last two years, Richman had been 80-84 with his fastball, and he’s now up sitting 84-87 there still with good late sink. He pairs it with a 74-77 slider (had been 70-73), and a new, tight 80-83 cutter, both of which give him a little bit of something to keep RHH honest out over the plate … Everything Jason Richman throws is sharper and harder than what I’d seen the last two years from him, both in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization (2017) and when he was originally with the Texas Rangers in 2016 … All that said, still a ways to go for him to make it to The Show; quirky dude who’s now a three-time Cal League repeater with very small margin for error moving forward. Time for Richman to graduate to Double-A and find a more specialized matchup role out of the ‘pen. Ultimately, my money is on him filling out as org depth and not much more, but his stuff has ticked up considerably this year, and you never know about bullpen lefties. Maybe there’s a shot.
