A 5-foot-8, 150-pound athletic build. Works from the stretch, short leg kick, short, fast, stiff arm action, high-3/4 slot.  Fastball keeps its plane at 79-81 mph. Curveball rolls with 7/1 shape, 62-64 mph. Rutledge recorded three outs after walking two in his inning on the mound. Offensively, right-handed hitter, middle-oppo, ground ball and flat approach. Balanced, athletic set-up, slight knee-knock load, pulls a flat bat through the zone with quick hands, pulls of early at times, 87 mph exit velo. Runs a smooth 6.66 60, getting up to speed quickly, ran a 4.23 home-to first in the game. Defensively, smooth, confident actions, good hands, short, quick high-3/4 slot, some accuracy, 81 mph from the outfield.  In-game, Rutledge put consistent pressure on the left side of the infield with his speed, reaching base twice on rushed errors, punched a clean hit through the 6-hole, and drew a walk, one of the few hitters to not strike out on the day.
