Ryan Rua Scouting Report

I was able to watch Ryan Rua take some batting practice during this morning's workouts and here is what I saw:

Rua has good strength, good wrist quickness, good bat speed, good short and compact swing. Just all-around solid tools at the plate, with no one special quality but also without one big flaw. An overall solid hitter.

Nothing about him stood out, but Rua showed good, above average abilities in wrist quickness and bat speed, to go along with good strength and a good short swing. I see his ceiling as a league average third baseman, which is a very valuable player, with a good chance to at least be a quality ML bench bat.
