2019 Cincinnati Open - Sneak Peek

The Arms

Ryan Kirkendall C / RHP / Stephen T Badin, OH / 2021

Body Type: 6-foot-1 170-pound prospect with projectable frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Threw from a ¾ arm slot. Movements were a little stiff and his arm action showed a bit of a pushing action to it. Doesn’t get much velo out his lower half.
Fastball: 77-81 mph fastball was mostly true through the zone but did show some arm side run at times.
Curveball: 61-66 mph breaking ball was a true overhand curve that showed decent spin and depth. Also, threw a slider that was essentially just the same pitch as the curve but thrown harder.
Changeup: 65-68 mph changeup was mostly true with minimal arm side life but he did kill spin well on the pitch to create some late depth.
Pitchability: Good feel for his 3, technically 4, pitch mix although the slider and curveball showed the same actions. Changeup shows good potential and created good depth on the pitch.
Role: Shows the potential to be a starter type as he continues to develop physically. Fastball and changeup show the most potential currently. As he develops refining the breaking ball will be important.
