05/19/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Poughkeepsie, NY
Ryan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground in the MIF. Throws are accurate with carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a tall, open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
