Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 55

The son of former Major League pitcher David Weathers, Ryan set a Tennessee high school tournament record with 28 strikeouts as a junior, including 12 in a shutout in the Class A championship game, and turned in two scoreless outings for Team USA as it won the 18-and-under World Cup in September. He followed it up as a senior by going 10-0 with a 0.09 ERA and 148 strikeouts in 76 innings, and the Padres took him with No. 7 overall pick last June, marking the second straight year that the club had selected the Gatorade National Baseball High School Player of the Year, following MacKenzie Gore, the No. 3 pick in 2017. Weathers signed for slot value at $5,226,500, forgoing a Vanderbilt commitment, and finished his pro debut with a taste of the Class A Midwest League.

Weathers lacks a true out pitch, but he has three solid offerings and mixes them well. His fastball sits at 90-93 mph and tops out at 95, playing above its velocity with a high spin rate that gives it deceptive riding life. Weathers' upper-70s curveball usually features good depth, and he possesses an advanced changeup for a teenager. He has a sound delivery and repeats it well, throwing strikes with ease.

A good athlete who does the little things well, Weathers was expected to contribute as a two-way player had he honored his commitment to Vandy. He gets his athleticism from both sides of his family, as his mother, Kelli Davis Weathers, was an All-America basketball player at Belmont.
