Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Rye Gunter:
"Rye has a typical power pitcher's frame with more room to add weight and strength. His delivery allows him to pitch on an excellent downhill plane. This allows him to live at the bottom of the strike zone with a low to mid 90s fastball, tight slider, and changeup. His physical stature and his three-pitch mix should allow him to come in and compete as a starting pitcher and handle the workload of a long season."
