Jack Reinheimer
Name: John Patrick Reinheimer
Born: Jul 19, 1992 in Charlotte, N.C. USA
High School: Kell HS, Charlotte
College: East Carolina
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 185 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 5th round (147th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2013 (signed for $327,600)
The 2013 draft class is lacking in shortstops, particularly college shortstops, so one player that stands to benefit is Reinheimer. He's a good athlete who should get a chance to stay at short, though some scouts aren't convinced that he'll make it long-term. He has first-step quickness and is a solid runner with a good arm, though some scouts see his ceiling as that of a utility player. The concern is with his bat, as he was hitting .278/.367/.354 this season and hasn't shown much punch throughout his career, collecting just 29 extra-base in nearly three three seasons. He fits as a sixth-rounder but will likely go much earlier because of position scarcity.
