Player Profile: Rick Asadoorian

I have three cards of Rick Asadoorian. This one is from 2001 SP Top Prospects.

Playing career: Rick Asadoorian was drafted as an outfielder in the first round of the 1999 draft by Boston. After seven years in the Red Sox, Cardinals, Rangers and Reds organizations he switched to pitching, last appearing for the Can-Am League Worcester Tornadoes in 2010.

Where he is now: He does business development/relations for Actslike LLC, an advertising platform, and is a product rep for the Zorian Bats and Lu Rong Living, a sports nutritional product which Asadoorian uses not only for biceps tendinitis and shoulder inflammation, but “Away from the playing field [he’s] noticed a much greater sex drive along with improved sexual performance.”

My memories: Never heard of him until I got his card.

Google Autocomplete results: The first five entries when you type Rick Asa have to do with him. The sixth entry is for Rick Asa, a freelance writer. There do not appear to be any other prominent Rick Asadoorians.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Miguel Asencio.
