Rutkowski is already a physically built 6-foot-2 230-pound lefty pitcher. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot with arm side sink and run sat 85-87. Showcased a plus changeup for his age with arm side fade and a hard 1-to-7 breaking ball at 75 MPH.

8/13/19: Showcased a solid command profile, working with an 88-to-90 mph fastball that reached 91 mph at times, up in the zone, and a low-80s slider with tilted action and average bite. He also flashed a straight change at 83 mph that served as an adequate change-of-pace offering. He stayed on line well, working aggressively in and around the zone, and showed a willingness to work forward and back with his fastball and breaking ball.

7/22/18: Selected in the 28th round of the 2017 MLB Draft, Rutkowski opted to attend Rutgers instead of playing professional baseball. Strongly built at 6’3/230 pounds with a consistent three-pitch mix, he seems very capable of improving his stock when he becomes draft eligible again in 2020. Utilizes a simple, repeatable delivery with consistent direction toward his target. Gets power from a developed lower half. ‘Drop and drive’ type of actions with slight shoulder tilt at hand break. High ¾ release. Low effort to his arm action. Finishes balanced with extension. FB sat 87-90 mph and topped at 91. Could consistently sit in the low 90’s with added strength. CB shows 2/7 shape with good velo at 75-79 mph. Also mixes in a CH at 79-84 mph. Had a tough time commanding the CH on this particular outing; came out very firm. Pitches with poise and isn’t afraid to compete on the mound. Quality young arm that could break out in a big way if he continues to improve. (Jurik)
