Strengths:
Lapointe has an average fastball that sits at 87 and touches 91. The pitch has nice arm-side run. He also throws a hard curve that has the potential to be another plus pitch. He’s got clean mechanics. Ryan impressed in his freshman year and should improve.

Weaknesses:
The biggest challenge to Lapointe’s prospect status is his build. Ryan is listed generously at 5’11” and he doesn’t project well. Lapointe has extra leverage as a draft-eligible sophomore which may make him tough to sign.

The Future:
If he’s willing to sign, Ryan could be drafted between the tenth and twentieth rounds.
