Reynolds opened his college career as a shortstop before a torn thumb ligament short-circuited his freshman season. He has played more at third base since, both for the Razorback and for USA Baseball's college national team last summer. He's a solid athlete with a tweener profile: defensive tools suited for third and a bat that profiles better up the middle. Reynolds lacks third-base power, with a line-drive, gap-to-gap approach. He doesn't have the proper load in his swing to produce more than fringe-average power. He responded well to last summer's challenge of playing with Team USA and later in the Cape Cod League, improving his preparation and pushing himself to improve. He was Arkansas' best hitter this spring (.350/.460/.541) thanks to a more consistent approach and better patience at the plate. He's an average runner who can steal a bag as well. Reynolds may hit his way into an everyday role if he gets the chance to play shortstop or second base as a pro, as he has soft hands, good footwork and an above-average arm.
