A huge, 6-foot-7, 245-pound righthander, Ribalta is new to pitching, but has been up to 97 mph this spring and scouts believe he has a chance to touch triple-digits. In 39 relief innings with Miami Dade this spring, Ribalta struck out 38 batters (8.8 per nine), but also has well below-average control and walked 23—more than five walks per nine—while posting a 3.92 ERA. Ribalta has a decent slider in there somewhere and occasionally lands one that gets scouts excited, but it’s extremely inconsistent. There’s some upside here given Ribalta’s lack of time spent focusing on pitching, arm strength and body control.
