Default Clayton Richard

Clayton Richard has been named to the Futures Game U.S. team.
I thought some of you would be interested to read this:

He could be a very effective pitcher at the Cell, with that sinking fastball.
He also works really, really fast, even faster than Buerhle!!!

He has a nice deceiving delivery (his body comes forward, but his arm doesn't right away). Plus, one of the things that's important for any pitcher that gets called up is that they throw strikes. If he can do that, he already has won half the battle. Hopefully he keeps this up and makes a name for himself.

He sounds like a shortstop.

Only 17 walks in 109.2 innings on the year, between Birmingham and Charlotte combined.
