After dominating AAA and in the Olympics pitching for Team USA, Ryan has made his major league debut and has looked wonderful. Through four starts, Ryan has a 2.45 ERA with 25 strikeouts in 22 innings. Over that stretch, he has a 2-1 record. He doesn’t have remarkable stuff, but it seems to play really well. His fastball, which he throws the majority of the time, appears much faster than it actually is because he releases the ball closer to the plate than most. As it stands, Ryan is likely lined up for two starts to finish out the season, against Detroit and in Kansas City.
