LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2011 California Underclass Showcase  
Rio Ruiz is a 2012 3B/RHP, SS, OF with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from Covina, CA who attends Bishop Amat. Ruiz continued to solidify his standing as one of the elite players in the strong High School class of 2012. Ruiz oozes ability everywhere on the diamond, showing a plus arm from 3B, in the Outfield and with an impressive inning of work on the mound during the Top Prospect game. But what makes Ruiz special is his bat. With plus bat speed, quick hands, good bat whip and strength to all fields, he is one of the top power hitters in the country. With a powerful swing the highlight of the showcase may have come on Ruiz's final swing of BP, a towering shot that easily cleared the tall fence in RF and was obviously gone from the moment of impact. Defensive skills were also impressive, as in addition to the arm he is an aggressive defender at 3B who attacks the baseball and makes hard accurate throws, has skill set to be plus defender in RF as well. Elite level prospect. He is just as impressive on the mound easily pitching 88-91 mph with more in there and we have seen up to 93 before mulitple times. Verbal to USC. Named to Top Prospect Team.
