Overall Summary
Ravenelle has a sturdy and athletic frame. With two potential average or better pitches, he has a chance to move quickly through Detroit's system, and provide value as a middle relief option. The command is currently below-average and wavers from batter to batter, which could ultimately limit his role to an up-and-down reliever.
