BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Ryal has always displayed patience at the plate, as well as an ability to hit for power. Add to that his infield versatility and team-friendly contract status, and the result is a player worth keeping around in a minor role. Every team needs role players, and despite his lowly TAv last season, Ryal provides depth in multiple positions at the cost of just one roster spot. Besides, anything can happen in a small sample, and it was only a year ago that his TAv topped .300.
2010 Ryal is a decent power bat capable of manning second or third base, who should earn his keep as a pine-riding role player. While we probably shouldn't expect a repeat of his small-sample slugging percentage of nearly .600, his defensive versatility, combination of patience and power, and team-friendly contract status should earn him consistent bench duty.
2009 Rusty Ryal can play second or third and has a bit of power; he might get to The Show as a bench player.
