Head coach Tim Corbin on Ginther: “Ryan has become one of our more trusted arms out of the bullpen. He’s a soldier…he wants the ball. He is our leading returner in appearances. As he has gotten older, his process and intent stand out. Self-directed and driven. Ryan has the right personality on the mound…he has contained confidence, is fearless and poised. He keeps his process simple and attacks the hitter. Low maintenance and a very steady young man in all areas. I really enjoy Ryan’s personality and his character.”
