Rylan is a 2016 graduate who plays OF and 3B. In the outfield he showed sure/clean hands, active footwork, an athletic fielding position (fields too deep) and he has good agility. In the infield Rylan carries over many of the same attributes/problems. He showed firm hands, active feet and a plus FH. Both in the outfield and infield he needs to smooth out his footwork and field the ball out in front more. Rylan is an aggressive/assertive fielder who is always hustling and communicating. At the plate he has an athletic setup, short stride, centered balance and he makes consistent contact to all fields with a plane swing path. He needs to develop a smooth load, use his lower half more, his timing is too late (start earlier), and his bat tends to drag through the zone. Rylan is a very coachable kid who plays hard and he has all the natural ability to be a very good player. If Rylan works on smoothing out his footwork/fielding position and makes the adjustments at the plate he will find a lot of success.

Ryan is a 2016 graduate who plays plays OF and 3B. He throws from an over the top arm slot, good consistency and he is accurate to his target. In the outfield Rylan showed an athletic fielding position, excellent range/agility, footwork is quick/fluid/efficient, plays through well and he is a hustler. Rylan has good instincts and can be a very good outfielder if he makes some small adjustments. More specifically he needs to field the ball out in front of his body and field with more confidence. In the infield Rylan displayed good agility and a controlled approach but he needs to be more aggressive and confident. Again he needs to field the ball out in front and also get lower in fielding position. At the plate Rylan has an athletic stance, stable balance, swing path is on-plane, line drive approach and average bat speed. He needs to find some rhythm/flow, smooth out his load and use his lower half to its full extent. Rylan possesses all the ability so if he makes the adjustments in each aspect of his game he will find success in the future.
