The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Rainville was the Rhode Island high school athlete of the year after fashioning a 10-0, 0.18 record with nine walks and 165 strikeouts in 77 innings as a junior. He was one of the most dominant pitchers on the high school showcase circuit last summer and participated in the AFLAC Classic, a game featuring the top high school juniors in the country, and struck out five in two innings. He opened this season going 6-0, 0.00 with three walks and 70 strikeouts in 42 innings. He was also a second-team all-state defenseman in hockey as a sophomore before he decided to focus on baseball. Rainville has a mature body with an especially strong upper half, but he probably won't get much bigger. He works from the first-base side of the rubber and has a loose power arm. He finishes his delivery tall, which hinders his front side extension. He is aggressive on the mound, pounding away at hitters with a heavy, 90-94 mph fastball with late life and good command. Rainville's secondary pitches are less refined. He throws a slow slider and straight change and slows his arm on both pitches. Rainville tends to guide his slider and lacks feel for his seldom-used change. He has signed with Tennessee.
