    The son of MLB reliever Scott Ruffcorn, Jason has spent the past three years as a useful member of Oklahoma’s bullpen after two seasons pitching in Texas A&M’s bullpen. With 80 appearances, Ruffcorn is one of the more experienced relievers in college baseball. He has a shot to be a fast mover in pro ball as well. He is more effective against righthanded hitters as his lower three-quarters slinging arm slot makes it hard for righties to pick up his release point. Ruffcorn’s mid-90s above-average fastball is effective because of his ability to locate it glove side and arm side. His low-80s average sider will sometimes sweep out of the strike zone, but sometimes it barely breaks. Neither is as effective against lefties, who generally get solid swings against him, but he does mix in a below-average changeup to them. Ruffcorn’s above-average control and ability to miss bats (12.3 strikeouts per nine innings) should make him a useful lower-leverage pro reliever.
