Perfect Game Profile

Ruiz is a top-level athlete that has a ton of talent. As an infielder, he reacts quickly, has soft hands and a cannon for an arm. As a left-handed hitter, Ruiz' smooth swing, quick hands and plus bat speed allow him to lift high velocity pitches with ease. On the mound, he has an easy delivery with a low effort release that produces low-90s sinking fastballs and hard biting mid-70s curveballs. Perfect Game ranks Ruiz #2 nationally among all two-way players.
