Tall, lean frame; long arms; minimal growth projection; average arm speed; higher 3/4th arm slot; crossfire delivery with a long stutter; gives some deception and plays up his arsenal; lower half stiff and inconsistent follow-through.
Erie SeaWolves (AA, Tigers)
30: Organizational Player
Subtracts velocity at times; poor pitch with little movement; decent plane; plus command and control; shows ability to spot fastball low in the zone.
Mild fade; mild feel; telegraphs it; fringe pitch; pitch does not have enough depth or movement to be productive enough.
11-to-5 break; casted a few times; average pitch; decent break and better working in the 77-79 mph range.
Ryan is an org guy who is starting at AA and putting up half-decent numbers. However, with a potential drop in his arm slot he could see a tick more deception and become a potential LOOGY. He displays solid command and control of all three pitches, and some alterations with the delivery might be what gets him into a major league bullpen.
