11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Ricky is a big, strong, athletic prospect who shows ability both on the mound and as a third baseman. He has a big arm with a loose, clean stroke to make strong throws from third and get good movement on his pitches. He is active at the hot corner with good footwork and quick actions to cover the position well. He shows a strong glove angle to the glove side and makes tough plays in the hole. Playing from the ground up will allow him to dictate hops and make more clean plays. At the dish, he is strong in his setup with fluid actions and good balance to stay on any pitch. He works on a direct path to the ball to make consistent, square contact and hit line drive gap to gap. On the mound, this big right hander pounds the zone with control of his three-pitch mix, using a downhill plane and simple mechanics to repeat his delivery. His fastball tops out at 76mph with tail and sink, his curveball has tight spin and 10-4 shape and his changeup has good sinking action. Ricky is an intriguing prospect who has a high ceiling on the field.
