Catcher Ryan Ortiz has hit well, both in the Cape Cod League and during his time at Oregon State. Still, scouts see a long swing and ultimately view him as more of a backup if he makes it to the major leagues. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, a preseason third-team All-American, has solid athleticism and a quick release from behind the plate. He's just adequate defensively with an average arm, though he has consistent 1.95-2.0 second pop times and nabbed 32 percent of opposing basestealers this year. He's also handled velocity on the Beavers' talented staff.
