Rafael Thomas is a 2007 OF/2B with a 5'9'', 170 lb. frame from Lufkin, TX, who attends Lufkin HS. Rafael has a lean athletic build and is one of the fastest players in the country. (6.47) At the plate Rafael has a short quick swing with a line-drive swing plane. He has good balance in his swing and drove the ball the best to the middle of the field. With his speed Rafael is best to get the ball on the ground and try to leg out plays. In the field Rafael best projects in left field. He has great speed and actions in the outfield but his arm strength is a little limited at this point. Rafael is a highest-level college prospect and a guy that could receive some draft attention this spring.
