08/25/2012 - College PREP - Purchase, NY Ryan is a young catcher that will graduate in 2014. Feet work in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show a range of 2.22-2.35. Throws display accuracy but needs to build more arm strength and improve foot speed to continue to lower pop times. Receiving / blocking tools show as playable tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to improve. At the plate, Rivas continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hitting / power grades are solid as he uses his lower half well. He displays quick hands that generate speed through the zone. He works to keep hands inside and through the ball, creating extension. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball exploding off the bat when centered. With 2 years to further develop, Ryan has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
