2020 Fantasy Outlook
Toronto received Anthony Kay and Woods Richardson from the Mets for a year and two months of Marcus Stroman, with Kay representing the big-league-ready piece and Woods Richardson representing the high-upside half of the return. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound righty has never had a FIP higher than 2.53 or a K-BB% below 20%. That's elite production for a high-octane 19-year-old who has already reached High-A. His low-to-mid-90s fastball has good riding life up in the zone and works as a plus pitch, while his power curveball and changeup have a chance to be at least above-average offerings. He is a strike thrower to a fault at times, which is part of the reason why his 4.25 ERA at Low-A was so much higher than his FIP. His competitiveness and advanced pitchability have allowed him to avoid significant struggles thus far. Woods Richardson is a good bet to be at least a No. 3 starter if he can stay healthy.

Joins 60-man player pool
PToronto Blue Jays  AAA
June 30, 2020
The Blue Jays included Woods Richardson as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Woods Richardson's placement in the roster pool appears to be mostly a measure to allow the Blue Jays to oversee his development more closely, given the likelihood that there won't be a minor-league season in 2020. Since Woods Richardson has yet to reach Double-A ball and probably wouldn't find much initial success if he were thrust into major-league action, the Blue Jays don't have much reason to start up his service clock yet.
