Gabriel Rincones
Name: Gabriel Alejandro Rincones Jr.
Born: Mar 3, 2001 in Boynton Beach, FL United States
High School: H.B. Plant HS
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 225 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (93rd overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2022 (signed for $627,500)
Rincones set a St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC program record in 2021 when he managed a 36-game hitting streak during a season when he hit .415 with six home runs. The Padres drafted him in the 19th round, but instead of signing the 6-foot-4, 225-pound outfielder went to Florida Atlantic for the 2022 season. The move has proved to be a wise one, as Rincones continued to hit at a high level in Conference USA, with some of the best exit velocity data in the country. Rincones hit .346/.451/.658 with 19 home runs, 17 doubles and 42 walks (14.6 BB%) to 51 strikeouts (17.7 K%). Despite future raw power grades that check in at plus and even plus-plus, Rincones is a hitter first who sees the ball well and controls the zone. He hits fastballs well and performed against 93-plus mph velocity, with the power to clear the fence to all fields. Rincones had more swings and misses against secondaries, but scouts still believe he has a chance for an above-average bat. He’ll need to hit, as his defensive profile is limited. He played right field for Florida Atlantic this spring but is a well below-average runner who might be a better fit for first base, where his tall frame could serve him nicely.
