WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Ress was a lower profile signing in the 2019-20 signing class.
Pitching mainly in long relief stints, Ress got good results in his debut, although the walk and K rates weren’t a good indicator. He had help from a low BABIP of .232.
The Pirates sent Ress back to the DSL and he had a very different season. In the same number of innings, he went from allowing 24 hits, one home run and 17 walks to 41 hits, six home runs and 20 walks. He struggled against both right- and left-handed hitters, allowing them an OPS fo .873 and .891, respectively.
Ress in 2022 didn’t look ready to move up to the FCL, but he’ll be eligible for Rule 5 in one more year.
