Ryan Ricke: Ricke is a strong and physically mature young man with very good bat speed and power potential. He has a nice rock and load and approaches the ball like someone who wants to hit it hard every time, which will occasionally leave him a little anxious on the off speed pitches. Ricke definitely projects to hit with some power at the college level with metal in his hands, though. Defensively, Ricke has very good arm strength, hitting 89 mph from the outfield with good carry during workouts. His speed is his weakest tool and it would be a shame to waste his arm strength at first base, but his bat looks like it will play at about any position. He's very interesting.

Ryan is a big strong 1B with some good hitting ability. He has a strong lower half (top half too) and showed some promise at the plate. He is a little raw but could be very interesting with a little mechanical work. He makes solid contact, but it look like there could be much more power in his swing. He showed some surprising arm strength throwing from 1B to 3B. We would like to see him on the mound, but don't know if he's ever pitched. Good student 4.3 gpa and 1180 SAT.
