Ricardo is a 2B who will graduate in 2022. Athletic build with some strength present and plenty of room to fill out. At 2B, he fields from the ground up, with a low funnel, as he tries to center ball. Clean transfers into a high ¾ release point. Accurate/on-line throws recorded up to 79mph across the diamond. A right-handed hitter, he starts with an square and athletic stance. Quiet head/eyes enable him to track pitches well. Good bat angle at contact, with extension out front, and ability to hit line drives to all fields. Reached base 4 times and had a bat exit velocity of 76mph in live game action. With continued growth and development, we foresee him having a bright future on the baseball field.
