Uncommitted Spotlight: 2025 RHP Ryan Falke


Caleb Dameron
PBR Colorado Staff

As we wrap up the 2023 season, we now continue our coverage of the talent we've seen so far this year in Colorado with 'Uncommitted Spotlights' of the top prospects still on the board in the junior class. While there's already prospects in the class committed to programs already, there remains a slew of high-end talent still available.

These spotlights help paint a picture of the prospect with the help of our TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance and Vizual Edge systems, that provides objective data that teams use to identify and break down players they believe will fit into their system.

Today, we continue our Top Uncommitted Spotlights with a look at 2025 RHP Ryan Falke of Cherry Creek HS. The junior comes with a fastball in the upper 80s and quality spin. Falke also creates some deception on his fastball thanks to averaging 15 IVB (induced vertical break) on the pitch. The tall and strong right-hander is one to keep a close eye on as his ceiling continues to increase.

Scouting Report

8/09/22

6-foot-3, 200-pound pitcher who attacked the zone and had two low-stress innings. His fastball sat 80-82, curveball 68-70, and change-up 72-75. Simple mechanics and was consistent with all pitches. Big frame with room to add strength. The foundation and projection are there, and I am excited to watch his progression.
