Overall Summary
Signed in 2013 as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic for $350,000. Reyes is larger than listed by about 2 in. and 30 lbs. His approach is advanced for his age, and the raw power began to show more in-game during my second and third viewings throughout the 2015 season. The defense at third base is a cause for concern, as Reyes already lumbers at the hot corner with below-average footwork and actions. His long-term position is likely first base, which will cause some pressure on the bat. However, he has barrel control and the makings of a strong foundation at the plate.
