Gabriel Rincones Jr., LF
The Phillies No. 9 prospect, Gabriel Rincones Jr., is slashing .311/.432/.525 through 16 games (61 at-bats) in the Arizona Fall League. His .957 OPS is the third-highest mark on the Scorpions.
So far this month in the desert, Rincones has collected 19 hits including two home runs, five doubles and a triple, usually hitting near the top of the order. He has also contributed 11 RBI and scored 19 times. Not to mention his 10 stolen bases, which puts him up near the top of the leaderboard, two off the steals leader who has 12.
Per his MLB Pipeline scouting report, Rincones "has the chance to be solid at the plate with potentially plus power, using an advanced approach to drive the ball to all fields."
Rincones has been showing off his advanced approach and solid hit tool in Arizona. He spoke to Sam Dykstra of MLB.com about his approach following a big outing in the Scorpions' 9-8 walk-off victory last week.
"Every guy has a different swing," Rincones said, per Dykstra. "But for me, it's going out there, doing damage, owning an approach, knowing when to manipulate the point of contact. [It's] just situational hitting, getting the job done."
In that game, the 22-year-old went 3-for-4 with a triple, a walk and three runs scored. He showed off his easy power with his triple that would have traveled 452 feet if not for the in-play batter's eye in center field, according to Dykstra.
The Phillies' third-round pick in 2022 just made his professional debut this season, splitting time between Low-A and High-A. In 120 games, he hit .248/.351/.427 with 15 home runs, 60 RBI, 81 runs scored and 32 stolen bases.
