Ryan is a corner infielder who performed well offensively at the event. He is a sure handed third baseman who makes solid accurate throws across the diamond. Quickening his first step and lateral quickness will be key in taking the next step in developing further as an infielder. Offensively, Ryan is a balanced and patient hitter with good pop. He needs to focus on keeping his hips squared and letting the ball travel to utilize right field when hitting. He is a quiet kid who has alot of upside as he continues to improve and mature.

Ryan is a corner infielder who is very coachable and showed good skills, especially offensively. As a fielder he displayed solid arm strength, good ready position, sure hands and proper footwork. He can improve by increasing lateral quickness, work low to high, and be more aggressive to the ball. At the plate Ryan has a good setup, balance, swing path and barrel accuracy. He is direct to the ball and is able to hit to all fields but improvement can be made by achieving more rhythm, getting more of a load, and using his lower half more.
