Army recruit. Ruggieri stands at a strong, broad shouldered 6-foot-6 245-pounds. Fastball sat 85-86 touching 87-88. Flashed a sharp, sweeping SL at 76-78 for strikes and was used as a strikeout pitch. Also flashed an 83 MPH straight changeup. Up tempo delivery into a tall, athletic balance point. Uphill shoulders coming down the mound, lands closed and throws across body a touch which makes him very difficult to pick up for hitters.

Ruggieri has a strong, broad shouldered build at 6-foot-6 240-pounds. Fastball topped at 85 MPH and sat 82-85 with late life. Showcased a curveball with 11/5 bite at 71-74 MPH and a harder changeup at 76-79. Ruggieri's build projects him well at the next level – can all ready spin a two-plane breaking ball for strikes. Tall-fall type pitcher, able to keep his weight back over the rubber to add force into back side. Strong lower half drives him down the mound, with a firm, closed landing leg and foot. Creates some extension over front side on release. Top prospect to follow in the 2020 class.
