7-2-13 - 23. Ryan Castellani- RHP, Brophy College Prep (AZ) HS http://www.ninebaseball.org/Wordpress/jeff-sullivans-top-100-2014-prospects/


7-24-13  -  Ryan Castellani, rhp, Brophy College Prep, Phoenix/Diamondbacks Elite Scout Team - With broad shoulders and lean legs, Castellani has a tall, athletic and evenly-proportioned 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame that offers projection. Using a full wind-up, Castellani gets downhill plane from his three-quarter arm slot. Over the last year, the UCLA commit has reduced the effort in his delivery and shortened his arm action, producing a loose, whippy arm. Castellani has hit 93 mph and sits 89-91 with his fastball. He has feel for a 78-82 mph changeup with tumble that has the makings of an average pitch and a mid-70s curveball. Castellani has an advanced feel for pitching. http://www.baseballamerica.com/draft/tyler-koleks-heavy-fastball-among-tournament-of-stars-standouts/


7-25-13 – Top 30 High School Prospects For 2014 Draft - 30. Ryan Castellani, RHP, Brophy Prep HS (AZ) - 6'4/200, Draft Day Age: 18.18, UCLA commit - Quick Take: Castellani is a well-known prospect who was in the low 90's as a sophomore and is a long-limbed, projectable athlete with a good swing, though he's a much better prospect on the mound. He clearly isn't trying to light up radar guns and looks like he's playing catch at 89-91 mph with solid average stuff and above average command. http://sbb.scout.com/2/1310090.html


8-14-13 – Through The Fence – Top 50 Prospects – 28. Ryan Castellani, RHP, Brophy Prep HS (AZ) - The 6’-4”, 200-pound right-hander has an advanced feel for the mound and can dial his fastball up to 92 mph with late, downward life. He adds a mid-70s curve and a change-up that sits in the 79-83 mph range and both project to above-average pitches down the road. He has good command of his stuff and there is still room for projection due to his size and easy mechanics. Committed to UCLA. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-top-50-prospects/36463#mwWwsFxSUZy7YC5V.99
