Ryan showed similar abilities in OK, as he did back in 12/09 at the TX workout. He ran his fastest 60 time to date at 7.19. He is a lean, athletic player with good skills at 3B and on the hill. Ryan fields the ball in a low position, shows soft hands, and gets rid of the ball quickly. He follows his throws across the diamond and they have life and carry on them. If Ryan can field the ball a little more out in front of his body, defensive abilities can improve. On the mound, Ryan has good direction toward the plate and he keeps his eyes on his target well. He keeps his arm speed the same with his pitches, he has good feel for his CH, and his FB has life on it. With better glove side lead, a long toss program, and not throwing across his body, Ryan can continue to get better. Offensively, Ryan has quick hands and good barrel accuracy. He has pop in his bat and makes good use of his lower 1/2. Hitting can get better if Ryan can work the ball to all fields and get more extension through the ball.

Ryan is a solidly built RHP/INF, that continues to show progress in his baseball abilities. On the mound, Ryan continues to work with good rhythm, tempo, and poise. His FB has some A/S run and his CB again shows good, tight, 11-5 shape and spin. Debo's CH had good feel and also had some A/S run. Ryan had more velocity at the Cape Code Training, which was probably do to unseasonable weather in Texas 12/6. Overall on the mound, Ryan continues to show sound mechanics and the ability to get hitters out. At 3B, Ryan has good footwork, hands, and arm action. He is a fluid fielder, and transfers quickly from glove to hand. Ryan fields the baseball in a low, athletic position and is very consistent in making the plays. At the plate, Ryan is an aggressive hitter with good bat speed. He keeps his head on the ball well, and could improve with better use of his lower 1/2.
07/10/2008 - Cape Cod Training 2008 - Week 1
Debo ran 7.28 in the 60-yard dash, slightly better than the 7.30 he posted a month prior in Omaha. His fastball was 83-84 mph, a two mph top end jump from what we saw previously. In addition, his breaking ball velocity moved up four mph - indicative of both the current fastball jump, and the potential for another one. He showed looseness and quickness in his arm and wrist that allowed for tight rotation and some depth to the 11-5 break. He showed some ability to pitch with his fastball and curve, did a good job of keeping the ball down in the zone. Delivery was balanced and his arm worked well. Can work to eliminate leaking front side. At the plate, his stroke was short and he showed good bat speed. Must work to stay back longer, let the ball travel. Defensively, his actions were good and he showed some range. Can work to get his hands more out front. Overall, an improving young player with rising value on the mound and some two-way potential.
06/19/2008 - Omaha Pro Select Training and Tournament - 2008
Debo ran 7.30 in the 60-yard dash, down quite a bit from the 7.57 we saw from him before. In addition, he jumped his top end fastball from 81 to 82 mph. He showed good poise on the mound, along with good presence. Can work to keep his delivery more in synch with his arm action, tended to get his body in front which caused his arm to drag - resulting in pitches up in the zone, along with trouble getting on top of his breaking ball. At the plate, he showed good bat speed along with power to the pull side. Tended to get out in the front of the zone too much, must work to let the ball travel and drive more through contact - has potential to improve power. Defensively, he stayed down with the ball well and made routine plays. Showed some arm strength across the infield. Can improve his footwork and glove action, but has ability to work with.
