A big, physical righthander out of Midway High in Waco, Texas, Rigney has plenty of arm strength, showcased by a fastball that was mostly in the 90-93 mph range this summer and touched 95 mph. He also throws a slider that ranges from 79-84 mph and looked like a plus pitch at times with sharp, late bite. There were instances, however, when the pitch became loopy and hung over the plate. Rigney also showed good feel for a low-80s changeup with arm-side movement and fading action that could be developed as a third swing-and-miss pitch. With a 6-foot-5, 191-pound frame, Rigney offers plenty of projection with solid arm strength from an overhead windup and three-quarter arm slot. Committed to Baylor, Rigney also has a quick pickoff move.
