Naomi continues to work hard on her skills. On the mound, she maintains fluid rhythm/tempo and comes to a controlled balance point with her shoulders in-line toward the target. She keeps her eyes on the target, repeats her delivery and throws strikes with her FB. FB now ranges from 62-65 mph as she works it to both sides of the plate. Breaking ball has 2/8 shape with some good action. Changeup has slight tailing action and compliments her FB well. Working to get separation a little earlier while finishing with more extension on her follow through will aid in her development on the mound. Only a 2025 grad - Ryan still has a ton of time to progress.
