Preseason All-State Preview: Raymond LaFleur III


raymond lafleur iii

Graduating Class: 2019

Position: OF/LHP

School: JM Tate

Height: 6-2

Weight: 175

FL Rank: 18

National Rank: 66

Scouting Report: 11/12/16- Very high ceiling as the left handed hitter has everything scouts and coaches look for in potential power left handed bat and corner outfielder. He has a calm and confident setup with good rhythm. He has a simple load and stays on time. He sometimes hits off of a weak front side, but the bat stays in the zone a long time and the ball jumps off the bat. As he continues to fill out and learns how to really use his lower half, there should be some plus power potential. On the mound he showcased a very easy and fluid motion. Has little to no effort in delivery. Arm works very well out front creating good extension and above average command for class. Upper and lower half worked in sync. Fastball sat 81-82 and projects to climb soon. Offspeed is behind the fastball, but projects to be above average given the athleticism and repeatability of delivery. Change up 74-77 mph, curveball 67-70 mph. Very interesting two-way prospect, but may be one of the better left handed bats in the 2019 class.
