    Riggio was a highly-touted prep hitter who played on the same Thousand Oaks (Calif.) High team as A’s first-rounder Maxwell Muncy. Riggio lived up to his billing as a solid hitter as a freshman with Oklahoma State, and slashed .295/.413/.519 with 11 home runs and 14 doubles, and is a draft-eligible sophomore in the 2023 class. Riggio took another step forward during the 2023 season and hit .333/.459/.676 with 18 home runs and 17 doubles and he cut his strikeout rate from 22.4% to 17.1%, while raising his walk rate from 13.1% to 16.4% year over year. Listed at 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, Riggio is undersized but solidly filled out and can put a thump in the ball, with at least average power and most of that going to the pull side and straightaway center field in games. He managed an average exit velocity of 86-87 mph in 2023, but his peak velocities neared 110 mph and he does a nice job maximizing the power he has by getting the ball in the air at good angles consistently. Riggio has a solid offensive approach and doesn’t swing-and-miss or chase at an overly high rate, though he could do a better job making contact against spin and offspeed stuff. He’s a bat-first second base prospect who has always been described as a fringy defender, though he should be fine making the routine play.
