Rinard is a slender 5-11 sophomore from Indiana with a projectable frame. He played both infield and outfield at the Showcase and our first impression is that he profiles best in the outfield. Rinard has pretty good speed at 7.23 to cover ground in the outfield and his long, fluid arm stroke plays much better making the longer throws. In fact, Rinard could end up with a very good throwing arm from the outfield. At the plate, Rinard hits from a no load approach with a wide stance and a whippy swing. He showed the ability to go the other way well and made consistent solid contact.
PG Grade 7.5

Rinard was the youngest age player at the Indy camp. He is an 8th grade student from Indiana who has a high ceiling due to the fact that he has a lot of growing left in him. In fact, he may have just begun to grow this year. He is listed as both an infielder and outfielder but we like his future as an infielder best at this point. We can project much of his ability based on the growth spurt we see for him in the future. He has a very good baseball frame to grow into.As many younger age players tend to do, Rinard had a couple technique corrections to make in the field. He was much improved by the second day which is another good sign for the future. Along with better footwork and staying down on the ball, Rinard showed smoother, more confident actions in the field. He learned to keep his feet moving and it showed as he naturally fielded through the ball. And his backhand ended up being one of his stronger aspects in the field. We liked him as an infielder and think that he has the chance to be a very good one. He showed low 60's velocity across the diamond and never really threw with any excessive effort. Combined with his age and projected strength gains he should develop the tools required to play middle infield in college baseball.. He ran a 8 flat in the 60, but we can see the potential for much better times, because he was quickest, by far, in the most important first half of that run. His stamina will come with age and he should be able to maintain that early speed. With the bat, Rinard showed some good hitting mechanics including a nice soft stride, good hands and nice balance. He swung aluminum and that is what will suit him right now until he gains more strength. He hit some nice line drives and showed an overall feel for how to swing the bat. The best adjustment he made was keeping the bat level through his swing and driving the ball to the opposite field. There is no telling how good he will get as he grows and by measuring the size of his feet he could easily end up over 6 feet tall. He has a good feel for the game and shows a big desire to improve.
