With their 40th round pick in the 2014 Draft the Cleveland Indians have selected right-handed pitcher Ryan Ryder out of North Mecklenburg High School (NC).

Born: 5/11/1995 – Height: 6’2” – Weight: 205 – Bats: Right – Throws: Right

Jeff Ellis: Here is a very interesting arm for the Indians last pick in Ryder Ryan. He has bloodlines as his dad made it to Triple-A and his uncle played in the pros. Ryder Ryan is a helium guy who hit 97 this year but sat mostly in the low 90’s. Here is a kid who really just this year focused on his pitching and what he shows is the potential for three above average pitches, with his fastball flashing plus. He shows excellent command for a high school arm. He really has some excellent upside when you consider how quickly he took to the mound this year. He will be draft eligible in two years and could potentially be a first rounder by then if he continues to develop.
