Twins Spotlight: Episode 32 (Marco Raya)

The discussion was live on the Twins Daily social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube pages.

Marco Raya was the Twins fourth round draft pick in 2020 out of United South High School in Laredo, Texas.

Shortly after the selection, Twins scouting director Sean Johnson said, "We really love his mechanics, his delivery, his arm action. He checks a lot of boxes for us. For a high school pitcher, great foundation to evolve into a starter.

Raya, who turned 18 after the draft, also has the pitches to get excited about. His fastball sits in the low-90s and has touched 94. He's got a hard, sharp slider as well as a slower curveball. He's also got a change up that needs development but has a chance to be a plus-pitch for him.

Raya is young and will need to mature physically over the coming years. He is touted for his work ethic and his character. Johnson said, "He's a tremendous worker, a tremendous competitor."

Of course, Raya was not able to start his professional baseball journey due to the lost 2020 minor league season. However, he was invited to the Twins instructional camp in Ft. Myers in November.

Tonight, we will get to learn more about a very talented Twins prospect. Please join us live at 8:00 tonight to watch, and participate by sending your questions. We'll cover a ton of topics and ask any questions you have.
