Royce Ring, lhp

School: San Diego State U. Class: Jr.
Hometown: San Diego.
B-T: L-L Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 215 Birthdate: 12/21/80
Previously Drafted: Indians '99 (41st round).
Scouting Report: Ring is the nation's best closer. He has three pitches he can throw effortlessly for strikes: an 88-91 mph fastball that tops at 94, a knee-buckling curveball and a changeup that has improved significantly this year. He resembles Randy Myers with his arm action, body type (6-foot-1, 215 pounds) and mound demeanor. He is a bulldog and wants the ball with games on the line. He led the Mountain West Conference with nine saves in 2001 in his introduction to the closer role, and his 17 saves this season ranked second in the country. A 41st-round pick in 1999 out of a San Diego high school, Ring should be picked late in the first round this year.
