Reyes has enough qualities to warrant first-round consideration, but his 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame may get in his way. He's built along the lines of David Wells and Dennys Reyes and will need to watch his weight. For some scouts, he's a what-you-see-is-what-you-get player. What you see is a pitcher who has a free and easy arm, is very competitive, knows how to pitch and is athletic enough to play an everyday position in college (Southern California). His fastball sits at 89-90 mph and tops out at 93. He has two other fringe-average pitches, a curve and a changeup, and commands his pitches well. Some clubs see him as a fourth- or fifth-rounder, but there's interest in the supplemental first-round--particularly by the Braves, who have two such picks and have made lefthanded pitching a priority.
