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.
