Unsigned Senior Showcase (October 16, 2016)
Swift has an athletic build at 5-foot-8 160-pounds. Recent Misericordia commit. Ran a 7.34 60, threw 78 mph across the infield. Exit velo 81. Has advanced baseball actions in the infield. Very quick, rangey type of middle infielder. Quick clean exchanges, short arm stabby action to throw. Offensively- Starts with hands above shoulder and weight visibly on back leg. Swings is started by a short stride/lift combination. Hand load is minimal. If he can get a little more relaxed with hands and arms prepitch, it will help with explosiveness in swing. Pulls off slightly on finish. One of the top performers from the event.


New Jersey Games (July 23-25, 2016)
Swift is an athletic 5-foot-8 160-pound middle infielder.  Extremely good in the infield, very agile. Ran 7.27 60. Offensively, uses a toe tap and minimal hand load. Aggressively turns hips with loose hands and a feel for the barrel. One of the top overall performers of the event. Exit Velo 84.
Defensively - Very clean footwork and exchange. Top defender in the games of the whole event. Made several incredible plays up the middle. Throws were 78 mph across the infield. Plays through throws and possesses soft hands. 


Winter Trials South (January 30, 2016)
Ryan is and athletic 5-foot-8 155 pounds  with fast twitch actions. He ran a 4.13 home-to-1B. Offensively- At the plate Ryan starts with an open stance shoulder width apart using a toe tap to get him back to even. Hands start off the shoulder and stay loose with minimal loading action, bat is at a 45 degree angle. Assertive lower half and Ryan snaps the bat into the zone. Extension is cut short up and over the left shoulder. Exit velocity was up 6 MPH from prior events to 86 MPH. Defensively- Ryan impresses with his active footwork and acceleration into his throws. Covers plenty of ground laterally. Hands are above average with a quick funnel towards his release.  Would like to see continuation of his energy to carry though the end of his throws. Peak infield velocity today was 73 MPH but we've seen him up to 78 MPH outdoors.
Battle at the Border (October 18, 2015)
Swift proved yet again to be one of New Jersey's best 2017 defenders. On a tough playing surface, Swift showed above average reads and matched that with excellent hands. He did let a ball or two get underneath him some throughout the day but he managed to deal with the circumstances and make the plays. His range is solid, yet unspectacular. Expect him to make almost all routine and above average plays. Offensively, the right-handed swinger made a conscious effort to minimize the movement in his lower half which allowed him to utilize his hand speed better. He had only one hit on the day but he did manage a 4.41 down to first and showcased his feel for the game on an excellent jump on a stolen base.
NJ Underclass Games (September 20, 2015)
Swift is undersized but full of athleticism. He hits with a narrow, upright stance and has good balance in the box. He utilizes plus hand speed to generate bat speed. His swing plane is smooth and efficient as he showed the ability to hit line drives from gap-to-gap. Defensively he has smooth, athletic foot work to and through the baseball. He flashed a very toolsy glove and makes it look easy. He engages his lower half well on all throws and his arm had life to it. He should be able to stick as shortstop so long as he increases his raw speed.
