12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Rafael is a lean, athletic SS who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting abilities with well above average power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through a compact swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. In the MIF, he continues to shine as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he takes good first steps in attacking the baseball. Glove action is soft / clean and presents well out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Range will continue to increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. Rafael has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
