Year   Team       AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   XBH%   ISO   2B+3B   BB%   K%          
2006   Miami (FL)       179   .285   .368   .486   39%   .201   12   0.9%   18.7%          
2007   Miami (FL)       218   .280   .378   .514   43%   .234   14   12.3%   21.8%  

Strengths:
Raben rivals Eric Hosmer for the most power in the draft.  He’s had exceptional power numbers at Miami (FL) including a bananas 43% percentage of hits for extra bases in 2007.  His arm is strong enough for right field.

Weaknesses:
Raben strikes out a ton (over 1/5 of his plate appearances last year).  His defense is passable in right field for now, but he may have to move left field or first base as a pro.

The Future:
#15-20 overall.
