Q&A with Ryan Pressly
The Ladder - 7.16.09

Selected by Minnesota in the Rule 5 Draft (Dec. 2012)

Scouting Report
: Pressly has a polished delivery with excellent balance and a consistent release point. Doesn't create much drive out of his delivery and is shorter with his arm extension. Features a four-seam fastball that sits 90-91 mph and occasionally tops out at 93 MPH. Primarily relies on a cutter that sits 84-87 mph with inward break on lefties. Can leave it in middle of the plate too much. Secondary pitches include a mid-70s 11-to-5 curveball and an 80-82 mph changeup. Creates good arm speed and deception when throwing his change, with it fading away from righties and in on lefties. His changeup doesn't have a lot of separation from his cutter, but can play well off his four-seam fastball. Pressly's curve can be sharp at times, but he is still developing consistent feel for the pitch and needs to work it more into sequences.
