7/05/22

6-foot, 190-pounds; currently sits as one of the top uncommitted left-handed bats in the Illinois 2023 class. Physical at the plate with advanced bat speed and consistently works on the barrel with little swing-and-miss. Launched a no-doubt home run on Field 4 that comfortably cleared the right field fence by 30 or so feet. Took a highly impressive BP round at the Illinois Preseason All-State this winter, 101.8 mph max EV, 94.4 mph average EV, and also ran a 7.02 60 with 90 mph arm strength across the infield. Profiles as a middle-of-the-order type bat at the next level with thump from the left side. 

2/26/22

Positional Profile: SS/2B
Body: 6-0, 190-pounds.
Hit: LHH. High-level left-handed swing. Balanced, relaxed setup. Fluid hand load, short stride. Compact swing, fast hands, present bat speed, highly repeatable, worked on the barrel to both gaps during round.
Power: 101.8 max exit velocity, averaged 94.4 mph. 347’ max distance.
Arm: RH. INF - 90 mph. Short, loose arm action, high 3/4 slot
Defense: Steady defender on the infield, quick feet, quick hands, clean actions.
Run: 7.02 runner in the 60. 

2/26/22

Of all the impressive BP rounds on the day, INF Ryan Niedzwiedz (West Aurora), was arguably the biggest standout. To the left-handed hitter's credit, everytime we see him, he seems to be elevating his entire skill set, and this time was no different. The 6-foot, 190-pound, wide-shouldered infielder ran his best 60-yard dash time to date (7.02) and was 90 mph across the infield, all while taking an explosive round of BP. The bat features all kinds of barrel feel to go along with some of the best power potential in the state. It’s a controlled, intentful swing with fluid rhythm, looseness and compact levers that repeats and stays through the zone a long time. Niedzwiedz was all over the barrel with authority, naturally elevating the baseball to both gaps and looks like one of the top left-handed bats still on the market in the class. He recorded a 94.4 mph average exit velocity, 101.8 peak exit, and his furthest batted ball traveled 347 feet – and he was lone hitter to hit each of the balls he struck 90-plus mph. He also led the event in average batted distance (307 feet), average hand speed (26.2 mph), average rotational acceleration (29.9g), and he finished third in average bat speed (76.3). Defensively, he has a strong arm and clean actions that should keep him on the left side of the diamond moving forward. While the bat is certainly a carrying tool, he profiles to slot into either short or third base at the next level. It was an eye-opening performance from the uncommitted West Aurora prospect.
