Ryan Andrew Speier is a professional American baseball player who plays as a pitcher. Speier began playing baseball at the West Springfield High School where he became a standout pitcher after three wonderful years at the High School level. He went on to attend the Radford University where, again, he shone with his pitching ability.

In 2001, Speier became an amateur free agent after not being picked by any team in the draft. The Colorado Rockies decided to pick him up and he spent the next 4 seasons climbing up the rungs from the Rookie league into the MLB roster for the Rockies.

In 2005, he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies, playing 22 games in the Majors in his rookie season. He had a winning season with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 4.76. He was assigned back to the minor leagues and he spent the entire 2006 season playing there before returning to the top division in 2007. Speier played 20 games in 2007 and ended with a 3-1 record and a 4.00 ERA.

His winning season streak continued in 2008 as he had a 2-1 win-loss record and a 4.06 ERA, pitching in 51.0 innings. In 2009, so far, Speier has had just 5 games, pitching at an ERA of 4.76 to round off his career ERA average at 3.99 (till date).
