12/28/2017 - College PREP - Swarthmore (Philadelphia), PA Rick is a solid, strong, SS who will graduate in 2019. Defensively, Rick has active feet to the ball, he fields in a low position, and his hands are soft and sure. He flashes a nice backhand, has a quick exchange, and throws with a short/quick arm with good direction toward his target. If Rick can improve his angles to the ball, improve his range, and add arm strength, defensive skills will get better. At the plate, Rick has a square set-up, short stride, and good balance. He average bat speed, a line drive swing, and hits hard to the pull side. Hitting can get even better if Rick can avoid spinning off the ball, shorten up, and let the ball travel deeper.
