Raimel Antonio Tapia Linarez is a Dominican professional baseball outfielder who currently plays for the Toronto Blue Jays in Major League Baseball.
He was born on February 4, 1994, in the Dominican Republic (MLB). In 2016, Tapia debuted in Major League Baseball with the Colorado Rockies.
In 2010, the Colorado Rockies made Tapia a member of their team after signing him as an international free agent. He participated in the 2013 season with the Grand Junction Rockies in the Pioneer League’s Rookie-level competition.
In 2016, he was chosen to participate in the All-Star Futures Game that was held that year. On September 2, 2016, the Rockies made the decision to promote Tapia to the major leagues.
In 2018, Tapia delivered a grand slam for the Arizona Diamondbacks when he came in as a pinch hitter. Tapia and Adrian Pinto were sent to the Toronto Blue Jays on March 24, 2022, in exchange for Randal Grichuk as part of a transaction that took place.
During at-bats, Tapia has been observed switching around his batting stance, which has garnered him some attention. While there are two strikes against him, he drops down into a deep squat and lowers his eye level by around five and three-quarter inches.
This is his normal posture when he is at the plate, but it changes when there are two strikes against him.
