Previously Drafted: None
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.
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.
If he’s willing to sign, Ryan could be drafted between the tenth and twentieth rounds.
