06/24/2019 - College PREP - Troy (Albany), NY Raymond is a strong, athletic 1B/C who has a promising future on the diamond. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure and he presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves his foot quickness. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.38 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Hands are soft / sure but needs to square up his primary and secondary stance. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work to and through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and he has strength in his swing, flashing gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, Raymond has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
