Top Statistical Performers


Zach Ryan RHP / 3B / Friendswood, TX / 2020

6-foot, 180-pounds, was the best arm of the day at the event. Has an athletic tempo to the delivery, slightly hides the ball and the arm path works well. Fastball came in at 88-90 mph with some late life at the top of the zone, paired it well with a curveball at 72 mph with tight spin and depth to it at the end. Also was able to flash a changeup at 80 mph with good arm speed. Ryan showed the ability to throw multiple pitches for strikes and has plenty of room to grow still as a pitcher.
