6/18/20

 

Compact, strong build; left/left prospect with some two-way upside. Showed best on the mound over the tournament in two appearances for P2P Millers (Boxwell). On Thursday, in two innings of work, he K’d four while sitting at an easy 77-79 mph on his fastball, touching 80 mph, with some deception. Loose, quick arm from a ¾ slot. Rakow relied heavily on his fastball in this brief outing and was plenty comfortable elevating it for strikeouts. He started on Sunday and allowed just a pair of hits against a quality ISA Stars Royal lineup and he stifled them, allowing just a solitary hit in five innings, striking out five, walking only one. Rakow touched one 81 mph early in the outing and held the velocity, 77-79 mph, throughout the start, mixing in an above-average 1/7 breaking ball.
