According to Red Sox scouts, he should throw harder once he adds some muscle to his skinny frame and physically matures without losing much athleticism.[77] He also has a pair of promising secondary pitches, with his downer curveball at 74–76 mph (119–122 km/h) presently ranking ahead of his fading 82–84 mph (132–135 km/h) changeup.[76] Raudes has been known to use an unorthodox pitching delivery motion.[78]

Aside from Anderson Espinoza, Raudes had the best season of any Red Sox minor league pitcher in 2015. Only 17 years old, Raudes led the rookie-level Dominican Summer League with a very significant strikeout-to-walk ratio (63-to-3) in ​53 23 innings, which he concluded with a 3–0 record in four rookie-level Gulf Coast League starts, while allowing two earned runs for a 0.90 ERA in 20 innings.

He finished third in wins in the Red Sox minor league system while posting the sixth-best ERA among starters.[57] At 18, Raudes showed consistency in Greenville as the youngest pitcher in the league, as he had a chance to emerge as a mid-rotation starter as he matures physically and mentally.[82]

Raudes spent 2017 with the Class A-Advanced Salem Red Sox, where he pitched to a 4–7 record and 4.50 ERA in 23 games started.[83] He finished the year rated as the Red Sox' number 12 prospect, according to MLB.com.[84] Raudes also spent the 2018 season with Salem, recording a 2–5 record in 11 games (all starts) with a 3.67 ERA; he spent approximately four months on the disabled list.[83] Raudes underwent Tommy John surgery in January 2019,[76] and did not pitch during the 2019 season.[83]

Fort Worth, Texas
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Jantzen Connery Witte (born January 4, 1990) is an American professional baseball corner infielder who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) and 195 pounds (88 kg), he bats and throws right-handed.[118]

Witte, who started playing baseball at three years old, also played tennis from when he was six until his freshman year of high school. As a result, he has been described as possessing an unusual swing that is a byproduct of his tennis background.[119] At the field, he has a solid-average defensive profile and good glove work at both first base and third base.

The Red Sox selected Witte in the 24th round of the 2013 MLB Draft out of Texas Christian University, where he played four seasons for the TCU Horned Frogs baseball squad during 2010–2013.[118] During this period, he was a member of three TCU conference champion teams and a tournament championship title. In 2012, he earned Academic All-Mountain West and second-team All-Conference honors.[118] In 2013, he was named Big 12 co-scholar Athlete of the Year, second-Team All-Big 12, and first-team Academic All-Big 12 as a senior, after starting all 57 of the Horned Frogs' games,[120] hitting .293 (61-for-208) with 15 doubles, two triples, three home runs, and 34 RBI.[118]

In his 2013 professional debut season, Witte hit a combined .168 batting average in 33 games for the rookie class GCL Red Sox and the Class A Short Season Lowell Spinners.[120] He improved considerably with the Class A Greenville Drive in 2014, hitting a .330/.418/.554 slash line with a .972 OPS in 65 games, earning a selection to the South Atlantic League All-Star team.[118] He finished the year with the Class A-Advanced Salem Red Sox, where he slashed .296/.340/.451 in 65 games.[120]

In 2015, Witte slashed .283/.363/.414 for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs in 85 games,[120] and was named to the Eastern League All-Star team.[118] Witte opened 2016 at Portland, where he appeared in 11 games, batting .359 with two home runs and seven RBIs. He was promoted to the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox in April, where he hit .258 with two home runs and 25 RBIs in 100 regular season games.[120]

Witte again played for Pawtucket in 2017, batting .242 with three home runs and 24 RBIs in 80 games played;[120] he missed nearly four weeks starting in late July due to a strained left calf. Witte spent time during 2018 with both Portland and Pawtucket, appearing in a total of 104 games while batting .270 with 12 home runs and 63 RBIs.[120]

Witte started 2019 with Portland, then was assigned to Pawtucket in mid-April.[120] Overall with both teams, he appeared in 118 games while batting .271 with nine home runs and 51 RBIs.[120] After the season, Witte played in the Puerto Rican Winter League.[121] In December 2019, the Red Sox included Witte on a list of non-roster invitees to spring training.[122]

In 2015, Wong's freshman season at Houston, he started 62 of Houston's 63 games at shortstop, hitting .248 with six home runs and 37 RBIs.[124] That summer, he played in the Cape Cod Baseball League with the Yarmouth–Dennis Red Sox.[125] As a sophomore in 2016, he started all 59 games and saw time at catcher, third base, and the outfield; for the season, Wong slashed .304/.415/.435 with five home runs and thirty RBIs,[126] earning All-American Athletic Conference First Team honors.[127] He returned to the Cape Cod League that summer, playing 41 games with the Bourne Braves, hitting .313 with three home runs and earning All-Star honors.[128][129] In 2017, Wong's junior year at Houston, he began catching full time.[130] For the season, he started all 63 of Houston's games, batting .287/.379/.494 with 12 home runs, 36 RBIs, and 26 stolen bases. After the season, he was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the third round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft.[131]

Wong signed with the Dodgers and made his professional debut with the Arizona League Dodgers before being promoted to the Great Lakes Loons after one game; over 28 games, Wong hit .276 with five home runs and 18 RBIs. In 2018, Wong played for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes[132] (with whom he earned California League All-Star honors),[133] batting .269/.350/.480 with 19 home runs and sixty RBIs over 102 games.[134] Wong returned to the Quakes to begin 2019, earning California League All-Star honors for the second straight year,[135] before being promoted to the Tulsa Drillers in July.[136] Over 111 games between the two clubs, he slashed .281/.336/.541 with 24 home runs, 82 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases.

On February 10, 2020, Wong was traded to the Boston Red Sox along with Jeter Downs and Alex Verdugo in exchange for Mookie Betts, David Price and cash considerations.[137]
