Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Riggs Threadgill:
"Riggs is a well-built power pitcher that uses his strong lower half to generate a low-to-mid-90s fastball. He works on a good downhill plane and will get a lot of swing-and-misses in the strike zone. The continued development of his secondary pitches will allow him to excel as either a starting pitcher or potentially into a potential bullpen arm that can close games out."
