Baseball America on Rio Ruiz

Baseball America asked their writers to pick a player who could jump on to the 2014 BA Top 100 Prospect list. Nathan Rode chose 2012 4th Round pick Rio Ruiz. Click the link for the whole thing, but here's your money quote:

He has tremendous strength in his wrist and hands, leading to a good feel for hitting and plus raw power. Like a lot of high school players, he needs polish, but he has the ability to be an average hitter with at least average power in games.
