07/17/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Rindge, NH Ryan is a young, R/R 2-way player as a 3B/RHP. With the bat is where he excels. He stands in with a strong base and athletic setup. Hands are quick as he swings on a level path and squares the ball up. He engages his lower 1/2 well and drives the ball on a line. At 3B, he hustles to come and get the GB and tracks the ball into his mitt. He gathers well and has a clean exchange to throw. On the mound, this RHP works the 2 with 4 different pitches (FB, CB, CUT, CH). FB shows some life out of his hand with tailing action topping out at 57 mph. Breaking ball has 9/3 shape with sweeping action. Only a 2022 grad, he still has time to work on his tools and develop his skill set. He will continue to progress by working on the following.
Offense 1. Contact points 2. Extension through contact 3. Load Defense 1. Arm strength (long toss) 2. Work lower, from the ground-up 3. Lateral footwork Pitching 1. Glove side lead 2. Extension on follow through 3. Lower 1/2 drive off of rubber
