12/30/2012 - College PREP - Swarthmore (Philadelphia), PA Ryan is a solid catcher who will graduate in 2013. Defensively, Ryan has soft hands, playable feet, and he looks the ball in. He takes good angles to block, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy to his target. Sitting lower, holding a lower target, and adding arm strength will help defense improve. At the plate, Ryan has an athletic set-up, a short stride, and average bat speed. He swings in good rhythm, covers the plate well, and makes consistent contact. A more level swing, and more lower 1/2 can spike hitting numbers.
