Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 40 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

Ryan was viewed as a better position prospect than a pitcher as a high school senior even though he could pump a mid-90s fastball. He passed on signing with the Indians as a 40th-round pick in 2014 and honored his commitment to North Carolina, where he would struggle at the plate and make just one appearance on the mound before leaving the team in 2016. The Indians took Ryan in the 30th round that June, signing him for $100,000, then dealt him to the Mets a little over a year later in exchange for Jay Bruce. He excelled with Class A Advanced St. Lucie early in the 2018 season, earning Florida State League All-Star honors along with a promotion to Double-A, where he opened his 2019 campaign.

Ryan shows power stuff out of the bullpen. He'll sit at 95-96 mph and touch 98 with a riding fastball that he pairs with a low-to-mid-80s slider that has a high spin rate and earns above-average grades from scouts. He also has a changeup, but it's a distant third pitch that he seldom throws. After issuing 3.6 walks-per-nine in his first full season, Ryan made strides with both his control and command in 2018 before taking a slight step back in '19.

The gains Ryan made with his breaking ball and overall feel for pitching last season bode well for his chances of reaching the Major Leagues as middle reliever capable of working multiple frames.
