Scouting Report

Rahier is a plus athlete with quick twitch muscles. He's the type of athlete that looks like he could play anywhere on the field. He's also the type of hitter that's already showing a professional approach. He hits hard line drives to all parts of the park with regularity and shows plus raw pull power. With the tools to stick at shortstop and this type of potent bat, he's one of the more complete total packages in this class. He also shows low 90s velocity on the mound.
