Reyes has been a bit of an enigma for scouts. He burst onto the scene as a freshman and was the Most Outstanding Player in the College World Series in 2007, the second of Oregon State's back to back national championships. He hasn't matched that success or competitiveness since. While his 3.80 ERA this year looks a lot better than the 7.08 he posted last year, he's been inconsistent and scouts aren't sure what to make of him. On top of that, he's represented by Scott Boras Corp., which adds another piece to the puzzle. Reyes has been sitting 90-91 mph with his fastball this year, touching 93. He has an average slider, but lacks a third pitch, meaning some scouts have him projected to end up in the bullpen. Despite spending 11 days in jail last year for his involvement in some backyard, rifle-related mischief, scouts like Reyes' makeup. He's regarded as a good kid from a good family, but they believe there are similar pitchers out there that won't command "Boras money" and could see him ending up back at school next year.
