John Ruettiger is a 2008 OF/P with a 6'2'', 180 lb. frame from Joliet, IL who attends Joliet Catholic Academy. He is a quick twitch athlete with a live, lean body. Ruettiger ran the 60 in 6.48 and he has a speed player's approach to the game. At the plate, he is a left handed hitter who hits out of a wide base with a short, line drive swing that emphasizes contact. Ruettiger will inside out the ball frequently and slash it to the opposite field. He has the hand quickness and leverage to project gap to gap extra base power in the future. In the outfield, Ruettiger has fluid actions and is aggressive coming to the ball. With his speed he should have no problem playing centerfield at the highest levels. Ruettiger's tools and approach look like a young Steve Finley. He is an outstanding student who has a verbal commitment to Arizona State.

John Ruettiger is a 2008 left hand hitting outfielder from Joliet Catholic HS, residing in Joliet, IL. Ruettiger has a lean, athletic, lithe build on a 6'2" 175 lb. frame. He was one of a small handful of '08 grads at PG National and showed quite well, likely earning himself an invitation back next year. Ruettiger has a projectable bat. His hands drop into a good hitting slot and he showed that he can clear his hips and get to the pull side. He has good bat speed and a flat swing plane. Ruettiger is a line drive hitter who could develop some power in the coming years as he continues to get stronger. He showed decent timing and had some barrel length through the zone. Once the ball is in play, Ruettiger can put a a lot of pressure on the defense with his plus speed. Not only is he a plus runner in terms of the 60 (6.52 laser timed) but Ruettiger has usable game speed (4.03 home/1st). Doubles for most hitters are triples for him and there are a lot of hustle doubles in his future, not to mention a lot of infield and bunt hits. He has a chance to develop into a gap hitter with occasional power with plus speed. In the outfield Ruettiger showed a strong arm as the ball exited his hand quite easily. He is an accurate thrower and executed disciplined one hop throws, easily handled by the infielders and catcher. Ruettiger can go and get the ball and has good energy in the outfield. He is a pure centerfielder. The top D1 programs should have him on their "get" list for the '08 class and pro ball will get a longer look at him next summer.
PG Grade 10.0
