Baby Rafael's credit is not listed on IMBD, but the young character is inspired by Owen Salinger from the original show. However, the role of Owen was re-cast a few times throughout the series as he started to get older. However, as an infant, twins Brandon and Taylor Porter portrayed Owen Salinger. 

What is the plot of the Party of Five reboot?

In the original Party of Five, the five Salinger siblings are forced to unite and live together after their parents tragically die in a car accident. The eldest son, Charlie, is put in charge of the family. 

In the new series, however, the Acosta siblings come together to navigate and figure out life after their parents are deported to Mexico with Emilio in charge. A similar, yet still different story.
