01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Erik is a tall/projectable (6'2"/205) LHP who competes when he steps onto the mound. He works tall utilizing his frame, has smooth separation and fires from a deceptive 3/4 arm slot. He follows through and finishes complete, out over his front side. He attacks hitters and works ahead in the count with a FB that shows arm-side run - 86-87 mph. Curveball has 2/8 shape with tight spin - 71-72 mph. He varies his looks and mixes well, keeping hitters guessing. In only 3 innings of work he didn't give up 1 hit and was able to strike out 9! Ritchie has a ton of upside and will be an outstanding addition to a rotation, early in his college career.
