Reynolds entered Stanford hyped as the next great Cardinal starter, and after struggling for most of two seasons he began to justify that billing this spring. He put together a four-start stretch that included consecutive complete games against Arizona State, California (beating Brandon Morrow) and Washington (beating Tim Lincecum). The Arizona State start opened eyes, as Reynolds pumped his fastball up to 94 mph as late as the ninth inning. One veteran scout brought up Mark Prior when discussing Reynolds because of his rare above-average fastball command for a college pitcher and for his size. At his best, Reynolds throws a high-80s two-seam fastball that tails away from righthanded hitters, then shows the ability to bust them inside with a 90-94 mph four-seamer. His newfound aggressiveness has impressed scouts and opposing coaches, who thought Reynolds (a former high school quarterback) was too soft and not aggressive enough with his fastball. His curveball and changeup both get solid-average major league grades. Reynolds, who has grown an inch in college, has become comfortable in his large frame and repeats his balanced delivery well.
