Rizy is one of the most physically imposing pitchers in the 2024 draft class and looms over batters with a 6-foot-9, 225-pound frame that still has plenty of room for added mass and strength. He worked from the stretch this summer and showed a relatively easy delivery with a slight crossfire landing. He pitches in the 92-93 mph range early in outings and has touched 94, though will mostly sit in the 89-92 mph range in extended looks, though his projection and arm speed suggest more velocity in the tank. He mixes in an inconsistent breaking ball that showed more power during the summer and has high spin rates in the 2,400-2,600 rpm range. The pitch blends between a slider and curveball now and is inconsistent and fringy, and he’s also experimented with a cutter and split-changeup. Rizy is one of the older pitchers in the prep class and will be a draft-eligible sophomore if he makes it to campus at LSU.
