Watch a video of Keating throwing with both arms.

In Fall of 2010, the scouting report states:
"On the mound, both righty and lefty, Bobby has good direction toward the plate and he keeps his eyes to his target well. He repeats his delivery, gets to his balance point well, and is able to keep his arm speed the same. He is currently a better Pitcher right handed." (watch the video)

In Winter of 2010 the scouting report states:
"As a young, 2012 grad, he has about the same ability as a RHP as LHP. As a LHP, Bobby has a smooth motion and good arm slot. From the right side, Bobby is ok mechanically and has a good follow through."

So, it sounds like he improved his RHP over six months. He definitely threw better righty in the video.
But he looks more like a first baseman, than a pitcher.
