Player Profile: Richard Bleier

I have one card of Richard Bleier, from 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Gold.

Playing career: Richard Bleier was the Rangers’ sixth-round pick in 2008, and slowly moved his way through the organization, finally reaching AAA in 2013. Overall in his career he his 53-54 with a 4.04 ERA.

Where he is now: He pitched in AA and AAA for the Rangers in 2013, the Blue Jays in 2014, and the Nationals in 2015. He signed with the Yankees for 2016.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Richard Ble, between Richard Blewitt Blackstone, an investment banker, and Richard Bledsoe, an artist. Another prominent Richard Bleier served in the Air Force during the Korean War.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bill Blount.
