Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 55 89-92 94 Below-average command; T93 3X; T94 1X; mild plane; mild boring action; worked north and south; was not missing barrels but was able to consistently keep the ball out of the air; refinements in command and/or stamina built up for higher sustained velocity could help boost this offering.
CB 50 73-77 79 Below-average command; 11/5 offering; inconsistent arm speed replication; currently lacks consistent depth and spin; will hang in the zone at times; other times it lacks spin altogether; best pitch shows moderate depth and spin around 76-77 velo band; refinements in release points and arm speed replication will make this an average offering.
CH 40 86-87 87 Poor command; mild feel; inconsistent arm speed replication; displayed mild fade a few times; release points and refinement in arm speed could help boost offering slightly.

Reyes is a Dominican pitcher with two potential average offerings. The body has projection, and Reyes shows feel for all three pitches. The mechanics are clean and the delivery is easy. While the development path is long for him, there is still a chance he can stick as a backend starting option if he can show further refinement in the CH. If not, Reyes will be able to play his FB/SL combo into a middle relief role.
