3B/RHP Ryan Apel (Homestead, 2025) was an early winner on the weekend thanks to his strong pitching performance. The right-hander worked his fastball in the 78-80 mph range, playing with some life out of the hand and working it to both sides of the plate. His go-to secondary offering was a gradual 11/5 curveball at 69-70 mph, thrown both for strikes and to put hitters away. He has some upside at the plate as well, as the right-handed hitter showcased loose and whippy arms that fire through the zone with a flat path, creating some sneaky jump off the bat. 5-foot-10, 155-pounds, seems taller than listed and still has plenty of room to develop physically.
8/24/23

RHP/INF Ryan Apel (Homestead, 2025) was mentioned as one of the spring standouts entering Sheboygan on Monday, and lived up to the hype as a two-way prospect, especially as a pitcher out of the greater Milwaukee area. On the mound, Apel presented a lower-80s fastball (T82.1 mph) with high spin rates, averaging 2202 RPM. The right-hander kept the ball low in the zone, throwing strikes consistently. The same could be said for the offspeed arsenal as well, where Apel twirled a sharp slider and quality changeup. Apel had a mature feel for the slider, a change-of-pace pitch, throughout his ‘pen, both landing it for strikes and on the outer half of the plate. His changeup was thrown with fastball-like intent, where he limited spin and allowed it to fade. In addition to his three-pitch mix, Apel reached 79 mph from the infield and was smooth in the batter’s box. On offense, he finished with a max EV of 90.6 mph, making significant strides since the last time our staff saw him in the winter. Standing at an athletic 5-foot-10, 155-pound frame, Apel projects well as an incoming junior and looks to continue to be a key piece on any team, as he just came off of a summer where he finished with a 0.68 ERA and 0.395 batting average.

Power: 91 max exit velocity, averaged 82.1 mph. 313’ max distance.
Arm: RH. INF - 81 mph. 3/4 arc, clean, loose action.
Defense: Fluid actions, sure handed, quick transfer.
