12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Ryan is a coachable C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the West Coast Winter Classic. Behind the plate, Ryan presents a good target to the pitcher and tracks the ball into his glove. He gains momentum well on his throws and keeps them on the 2B bag. He works to block balls in the dirt and covers up well. Being more efficient moving to block can help Ryan improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He is controlled getting into a small load and hits against a strong front side. He takes a level swing and rotates his core well, leading to solid contact to all fields. Ryan can improve as a hitter by working on his contact points. With six more years to develop, Ryan has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
