Top Prospect Games II

Rucker is 5-9 with a lankier athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a relaxed upright slightly open stance, strides on line, short load back. Hips rotate completely and he maintains some lower half balance. Short to the ball and stays inside. Level line drive swing, showed a good approach working gap to gap, exit velocity was 81. In the outfield, gets behind ball and plays through it, fields with average hands. Clean exchange, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot with a free arm action, outfield velocity was 74. On the mound he throws from a low three-quarters arm slot with a short arm action that is free, normal effort to his delivery. Shoulders are level and on line, lands closed with an athletic finish, simple repeatable delivery. Fastball 69-73, with late run to armside that gets depth as well. Curveball was 66-68 with good armspeed and gradual 11/5 break.

Underclass Games 

Rucker is 5-7 with a lankier athletic frame that still has projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced stance, short stride on line smooth load back, hips rotate explosively and he has some balance to his swing. Short to ball, level line drive swing, showed good approach working gap to gap, exit velocity was 77. In the outfield, rounds ball to field in direction of throw, fields with average hands and plays through the ball to a clean exchange. Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, outfield velocity was 71.

01.21.18
Still maturing in a 5-foot-4, 120 pound frame.  Balanced setup on the right side with a simple approach and some feel for the barrel.  Direct to the ball, and as strength is added the exit velocity of 74 mph will increase.  From the outfield, worked cautiously through the baseball and to his transition.  Short arm swing to a high-3/4 slot with some stiffness in the arm.  Showed some feel for accuracy on throws at 67 out of the hand.  Ran a 3.24 in the twenty yard dash and a 5.29 in the 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Standing broad jump of 6’2”.
On the mound, begins with rocker to the side, working with an ease in the body through balance.  Stays level with some rhythm, landing slightly closed.  Fastball sat 62-65, cutting at times late in the bullpen.  Breaking ball ranged 61-63, in the zone, but lacking mature definition.  As strength improves, the pitch should develop a consistent arc.  One change clocked at 57.
