Rahier isn't taking the most typical path as a Draft prospect. He doesn't play for his high school team. Instead, the infielder chose to play for his spring travel team, playing in wood bat games instead of for his Palm Desert High School team, and scouts have been sure to check him out this spring. An aggressive hitter who can really turn on fastballs, he has the chance to have plus power in the future. He does overswing and can struggle with breaking stuff at times. He's an average runner, but basestealing won't be a part of his game. Defensively, his best tool is his arm, though he also has decent hands and fairly good range. He likely won't stay at shortstop, though all of his skills, from the power bat to his defensive tools, should profile just fine at third base.
