6/11/19

Body type:  5-foot-11, 165-pound big physical frame.

Swing mechanics:  Really loads into his back leg, and swings with intent.  Also, keeps his hands loaded and loose.

Hit:  Twitchy bat to the pull side.  Level bat path.

Power:  Pop to the middle of the field with more to come as he develops and adds size.

Offensive projection: To be determined.
Field: Frame and skill set for the corner infield. Quick feet with fluid actions. Ball skills are on par for class.
Throw:
Clean arm that will support added strength down the road.
Defensive Projection:
CIF.

5/28/19

Body Type: 5-foot-11, 165-pound prospect with room to add strength.
Swing Mechanics:
Upright with minimal load. Hands work directing to the ball on a mostly level path.
Hit:
Stayed in the zone with good feel for the barrel. Worked all parts of the field.
Power:
Line drive hitter with growing power potential. 81 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection:
Multiple roles.
Run:
4.81 H to 1st
Field:
Glove is solid. Footwork needs to continue developing. Makes plays that he can get to.
Throw:
Short arm action and quick transfer make up for presently below average arm strength. Throw were accurate at 74 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection:
Too early to tell. Likely remains at a corner IF spot.
Additional Comments:
Solid overall tools, will only get better moving forward. 

1/26/19
Body Type: 5-foot-11, 160-pound physical frame.
Swing Mechanics: Balanced stance from the right side. Quiet hands during his leg kick load with lower half.
Hit: Balanced swing that travels on a slightly downhill path to contact. Showed feel for the barrel, squaring the ball up frequently in BP.
Power: 83 mph exit velocity. Swing offers a bit more physicality than speed presently. Has the tools to be a middle of the lineup guy. Should see more natural ball flight by adding loft to stroke.
Offensive Projection: Middle of Lineup.
Run: 4.53 H-1st.
Field: Frame for the first base position. Fluid feet with reliable hands. Looks to be a solid defender.
Throw: Ball comes out well, tossing it across the diamond with accuracy. Topped at 75 mph across the infield.
Defensive Projection: Corner Infielder

1/27/18

5-foot-11, 160 pound right-handed hitter provided an uphill path the met the baseball on plane often in his round. Ruhnke gets his lower half involved well in his swing and long with getting good extension and staying through the ball for the most part though he sprung up some swings rather than rotating through the ball. His exit velocity was 76 mph and is above average for his class and that can be improve by creating more separation. In the infield, Ruhnke’s hands were soft and he did an excellent job working through his backhand. He threw with a short-arm action 65 mph across the diamond and that will improve as he gets older.
