Scouting Report

7/07/20

 

Ranked as the No. 1 prospect in Minnesota, Ritzer is a strong all-around infield prospect. He’s a North Carolina recruit who possesses above average tools in his defense and run abilities. There’s some effort to his run with too much east/west movement in his arm swing, yet he gets down the track for a 6.75 sixty. On the dirt his sure hands, athletic actions and solid range to both sides offer dependability without the flash. With a clean transfer his near average raw arm strength plays up and bolsters his already strong defensive package. In the batter’s box the left-handed hitter shows good bat strength with a repeatable swing using his lower half well. These traits produce near average raw power to all fields and a 93 mph exit velocity off the tee. With a strong on-plane efficiency score of 77%, Ritzer’s bat is long through the zone, but he must improve his marks of 66.4 mph of bat speed, 20.5 mph peak hand speed and just 7.9 g rotational acceleration to have an impact at the collegiate level.
