Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 30 86-88 89 Subtracts velocity at times; poor pitch with little movement; decent plane; plus command and control; shows ability to spot fastball low in the zone.
CH 40 79-82 83 Mild fade; mild feel; telegraphs it; fringe pitch; pitch does not have enough depth or movement to be productive enough.
CB 50 77-80 81 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.
