Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Average bat speed; fast-twitch swing with quick hands through the zone; mild pre-swing noise causes inconsistent barrel path; very mild leg kick and load; shows mild ability to recognize spin; unbalanced often against secondary pitches.
Power 30 Fringe raw power; surprising pop for a small frame; slight leverage with average bat speed help play power to an extent.
Baserunning/Speed 50 ~4.30 home to first; more agility than speed; lacks a second gear due to short legs and strides.
Glove 50 Smooth hands; quick and efficient footwork; strong pivot skills; quick transfer and release; range is fringe; lacks the burst and extension to reach some plays up the middle; plays an average 2B: lacks the range and athleticism to consistently play SS but could work there in a pinch.
Arm 40 Below-average arm strength; ball lacks carry when throwing farther than 2B; works fine at 2B.

Reyes signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2012. The overall profile lacks a carrying tool, but Reyes should be able to work his way to the upper minors by playing up the middle defense in a potential utility role. The risk is moderate because he is in his first year of full-season ball, although there is not a large amount of growth left in the profile. Reyes projects to be a strong org player with good makeup.
