01/13/2017 - Baseball Factory National Spring Training at Pirate City Raphael is a tall, lean 1B/OF prospect who looks the part in the field and in the box. He shows natural instincts and feel at the dish with line drive ability and a very smooth swing. He sets up tall in the box and loads to a powerful bat angle while showing good plate discipline. His swing has good rhythm and his hands work directly to the ball to make consistent contact and use all fields to spray line drives. At first, he shows great energy working hard to get to balls in the hole and down the line while hustling back to the bag to receive throws. He provides a big target at the bag for other infielders to make throws and shows a wide catch radius to pull in throws from all directions. Getting down low with presented hands will lead to more clean plays he makes moving forward. Raphael is an intriguing prospect who works hard and gets better every time he steps on the field.
