6/30/21

Physical: Strong, proportional 6-foot, 185lb frame with some durability. 7.57 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even stance with the barrel waving at the shoulder to start; utilized a short lift and replace stride, operating with a slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. The barrel matched pitch-plane early in ball flight, working towards a two-handed finish on the back shoulder. Hit into a stiff front side with adjustability producing a 60% line drive rate during his round (via Trackman). Minimal extra movements allowing the actions to repeat, notching a T88 mph bat-exit velocity (84 mph average) and showcased a near 300 foot batted ball distance for occasional doubles juice. 

Defensively: The shortstop demonstrated good routes on defense, rounding the ball downhill to the target with the chest downhill over toes. Fielded soft, cleanly inward and exchanged accurately, releasing from a H ¾ slot (79 mph arm strength). 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the left side of the rubber using quicker pace and a simple delivery. Able to work in a straight line down the slope, landing athletically into a H ¾ slot. The FB ranged from 75-76 mph with small arm-side run, adding a commanded, sweeping 66-68 mph CB with a 100% zone rate (T10 inches HM).

A lean athletic frame at 5-foot-9, 145 pounds. Offensively- the right handed hitter had an impressive performance at the NY Jr. Games. Displayed hard consistent contact during the batting practice portion and was an impact player during live game action. Short direct path to the baseball and good use of the lower half. Defensively- the infield displayed active footwork during the defensive session. He gets himself in a good fielding position when attacking the baseball. Quicks rid of the baseball quickly. Top throwing velocity across diamond was 75 MPH. Pitching- the right handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery and a projectable live arm. Raphael displayed good FB command peaked at 75 MPH. Mixed in a SL ranging from 68-70 MPH.
