Minor League Top Prospects
The behemoth Reyes showed off 80-grade raw power in the Arizona Fall League last year and matured enough as a hitter to get to it more this year. Reyes became more patient in his approach and started waiting for better pitches to hit, resulting in a huge uptick in both his walks and power production. He hit 16 homers in just 58 games in El Paso, followed by another 15 long balls in his first 70 games with the Padres as he became their everyday right fielder. Reyes is tremendously strong at 6-foot-5, 275-pounds and generates huge leverage and power with his brute strength. His big league home runs included blasts of 442, 455 and 477 feet. He crushes fastballs in particular and can send them out to all fields. Reyes’ range in right field is limited because he’s so large, so his value is mostly tied to his bat. Even with his improvements, Reyes still swings and misses a bit much and is prone to whiffing on breaking balls. He’ll have to work hard to manage his body and his strikeout rate, but if he does he has game-changing power.
