Athletic 5-foot-11, 185-pound middle infielder. North Carolina commit. The left-handed hitter sets up in a narrow stance with a hand load and short stride into a strong, repeatable line-drive swing. Uses his lower half well showing some ability to drive the ball to the opposite field. 88 mph exit velocity off the tee. In the infield, athletic actions with sure hands and clean transfers, showing the ability to throw on the run from multiple arm angles with lateral range. 6.79 runner in the 60.

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.
