10/28/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West
Riley once again performed well at a Baseball Factory event. His 6'3"/215-pound frame has the strength you would expect, and also flashes athleticism. His right-handed stroke generates good bat speed that combines with leverage to generate present power. He posted an exit velocity of 93 mph and made some loud contact during batting practice. At 1B Riley moves well, has good hands and provides a good target for the rest of the infield. Committed to Air Force, Riley is a hard worker with a chance to be a middle-of-the-order bat at the next level.
