    Like other several other Vanderbilt prospects, Ravenelle hails from the Northeast, a Massachusetts prep product who was a 44th-round pick of the Yankees in 2011 but chose to go to school. He has overhauled his mechanics since high school, to positive effect, with a fastball that tops out at 97 mph, sitting in the mid-90s, with a slider that's inconsistent but a plus pitch when it's on. He has worked exclusively as a reliever for the Commodores but has an athletic, prototype pitcher's body at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds and a clean delivery, so he has a chance to start in pro ball. He'll likely start early in his pro career if only to get innings. Even after pitching in summer ball the last two years, he still had fewer than 100 career innings. Ravenelle's fresh arm and ideal frame make him a college pitcher to dream on.
