Maryland Preseason All-State Session I

Body: 6’1’’, 175 pounds. Strong, athletic, projectable frame. 
Hit: RHH. Hits from a balanced, slightly open, crouched stance at the plate. Smooth back load with some hand separation and a bigger leg kick stride. Rhythmic, fluid actions with quick bat speed through contact and a slightly uphill swing path. Stays behind the ball well, creating solid extension through and past contact with a slight recoil in the back swing. Hands stay inside the ball well with strong line drive tendencies to the middle of the field. 
Power: 91 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Present pop to the pull side with more projected to the gaps and alleys as the body continues to fill out. 
Arm: RH. OF - 83 mph. Throws with shorter arm action from an over the top slot. 
Defense: Fields the ball in closer to the body with soft hands and quick, active footwork. Creates solid momentum through release with clean exchanges and accurate throws that showed carry. 
Run: 7.46 60-yard time.

Delivery: Started off the left side of the rubber showing a methodical side rocker into a medium leg lift with deep hip coil around the backside; held direction well with a solid straight line drive down the rubber with a straight up and down finish on his pitches. 
Arm Action: RH. High ¾ slot with repeatability in the arm action. 
FB: T80 mph, 77-79 mph. Average spin rate of 1876 rpm. Better play down with an average of 17.6 inches of IVB (below-average). Has a slightly heavy feel to it, though it is mostly straight at the moment (4.7 inches of HM). 
CB: 67-70 mph. Average spin rate of 1559 rpm. Developing pitch with the shape there already (16 inches of HM); held the zone at a 25% clip with average command on it.

Hit: RHH. Hits from a balanced, square, slightly crouched stance at the plate. Rhythmic back load with some hand separation and a smaller leg kick into a shorter stride.

Strong one handed finish with a more level swing path. Gap-to-gap line drive approach.   
Power: 89 mph exit velocity per TrackMan during BP. Some present pull side pop with more projected as his body continues to fill out. 
Arm: RH. OF - 74 mph. Throws with shorter arm action from a high three-quarter slot.

1/11/20

Athletic setup at the plate, starts open, small leg lift, and strides forward landing on line. Hands are loose and relaxed, minimal load, and are short to the ball. Level path to the swing, stays on through extension, and lower half finishes completely. Exit velocity was 79 mph. Behind the plate Ruiz worked through the throw, had a quick centered exchange, and threw with a short arm action from a three-quarter arm slot at 76 mph. Pop times ranged from 2.15-2.20 and were consistently in line. In the outfield he was under control on approach with short choppy steps, glove worked outside body freely, and had a solid presentation. Average arm action throwing from a three-quarter arm slot at 79 mph. Ran a 7.34 60.
