- Full name Reggie Fitzpatrick
Organization Prospect Rankings
Fitzpatrick struggled as a high school senior and again last year, but the Expos are still excited by his raw tools and huge upside. Nicknamed "The Train," he's a gifted athlete and a true burner. Fitzpatrick can run the 60-yard dash in 6.5-6.6 seconds. He shows major league range and outstanding flychasing skills in center field. He still has a ways to go in other areas of the game. Fitzpatrick's swing has length to it, but the ball comes off his bat well. He needs a better feel for the strike zone and for stealing bases. Fitzpatrick's arm is currently below-average but should improve with repetitions and added strength. Like Nick Long, a fellow Georgia high school product, Fitzpatrick may not be ready for full-season ball at the outset of his third pro season.
