Orlando Ribalta, RHP: Ribalta can flash some promising velocity, touching the mid-90s from his 6-foot-7 frame, and shows two distinct breaking balls in his cutter and curveball. The 2019 12th-rounder out of Miami Dade (Fla.) Community College spent 2022 in the Fredericksburg and Wilmington bullpens, posting a 3.40 ERA with 54 strikeouts and 27 walks in 50 1/3 frames.

2022:
A: 34 IP, 3.97 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 33Ks, 19 BBs
A+: 16.1 IP, 2.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 21Ks, 8 BBs
