Teams are more willing to take a chance on a 6-foot righthanded pitcher nowadays than they were 20 years ago. That’s good news for pitchers like Ruebeck. He has plenty of arm strength already as he can touch 94 mph and sits 89-93 with an average fastball. He’s an excellent athlete who displays that athleticism as a shortstop when he’s not pitching. There’s some future projection left with Ruebeck and he has a fringy slurvy curveball and developing changup as well. Ruebeck is signed with Oklahoma.
